Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dency sends a let­ter to Euro­pean Union

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dency sent a let­ter to Euro­pean Union mem­bers re­spect­fully re­quest­ing them to ur­gently come for­ward and of­fer humanitarian aids to the IDPs who have taken refuge in the Kur­dis­tan re­gion.

In the letters the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dency ex­plained that the dis­placed peo­ple are suf­fer­ing se­verely due to the lack of shel­ter, food and other ba­sic needs. Ur­gent aids are needed to save lives of thou­sands of peo­ple.

It also called upon the mem­bers of the EU to pro­vide the pesh­marga forces with nec- es­sary arms to de­ter ISIS of­fences and pro­tect civil­ians and dis­placed peo­ple.

The Kur­dish forces are in an asym­met­ri­cal war­fare against an or­ga­nized and well-armed ter­ror­ist group. With no doubt, rapid equip­ment of Pesh­marga forces with heavy and so­phis­ti­cated weapons will change the equa­tion in the bat­tle­field in fa­vor of the Kur­dish Pesh­merga forces.

Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dency hoped that the mem­bers of the Euro­pean Union will ur­gently and pos­i­tively re­spond to our re­quest.
