Kur­dis­tan Re­gion’s Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani wel­comed on Mon­day, Jul 7, 2014, a del­e­ga­tion from the North­ern Kur­dis­tan Demo­cratic Party headed by the leader of the party Ser­tac Bu­cak, who was ac­com­pa­nied by a num­ber of mem­bers of the polit­buro and the lead­er­ship of the party.

The vis­it­ing del­e­ga­tion ex­pressed their grat­i­tude and pride for hav­ing the op­por­tu­nity to make this visit and meet Pres­i­dent Barzani.

Bu­cak warmly wel­comed the steps and ef­forts by Kur­dis­tan Re­gion to­wards in­de­pen­dence and ref­er­en­dum in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion. He ex­pressed his party’s full sup­port for Kurds in South­ern Kur­dis­tan in this re­gard. He said they are ready to help their broth­ers in South- ern Kur­dis­tan in their strug­gle to ob­tain their rights, and hoped that the Kur­dish move­ments in all parts of Kur­dis­tan would achieve their goals since this is the true need of the people of Kur­dis­tan.

Af­ter wel­com­ing the del­e­ga­tion, Pres­i­dent Barzani ex­pressed his hap­pi­ness about the pos­i­tive changes and the open­ings that have hap­pened in Turkey.

Pres­i­dent Barzani said that the Kur­dish na­tion in this part of Kur­dis­tan needs to have a ra­tio­nal and real­is­tic pol­icy.

Re­gard­ing the po­lit­i­cal and se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tions in Iraq and the is­sue of Kur­dis­tan’s in­de­pen­dence, the Kur­dish Pres­i­dent said that as a re­sult of the ac­cu­mu­lated crises and the wrong poli­cies of the Cen­tral Govern­ment, there is no space left for mod­er­ate people among Sun­nis or Shi- ites and the prob­lems worsen day af­ter day.

“We have tried our best dur­ing the past 10 years to live with Iraq but we couldn’t. The rea­sons were the be­hav­ior of the au­thor­i­ties in Bagh­dad and their to­tal­i­tar­ian cul­ture,” Pres­i­dent Barzani told Bu­cak and his ac­com­pa­ny­ing del­e­ga­tion.

“Our de­ci­sion about in­de­pen­dence and re­ly­ing on the opin­ions of our people is made at the right time.” Com­ment­ing on Kirkuk and the rights of the other eth­nic, re­li­gious and sec­tar­ian groups in the city, Pres­i­dent Barzani said they will re­spect the will and the rights of all the com­po­nents of Kirkuk and work ac­cord­ing to their wish and “we will try to make Kirkuk an ex­am­ple of co-ex­is­tence in the re­gion and the whole world.”
