State­ment by Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dency on Kobani

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - Dr Fuad Hus­sein, Chief of Staff of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent Ma­soud Barzani

Since the be­gin­ning of the threats and at­tacks by ter­ror­ists of Is­lamic State (IS) on Kobani, the Pres­i­dency of Kur­dis­tan Re­gion an­nounced its support for the city and the peo­ple of West of Kur­dis­tan.

The Kur­dish Pres­i­dent Ma­soud Barzani has been ea­gerly fol­low­ing up the sit­u­a­tion of Kobani and its dis­placed peo­ple. Barzani in a mes­sage re­leased on Septem­ber 19, 2014, asked the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity to pro­tect the Kur­dish city from the ter­ror­ist at­tacks.

After the re­cent events and after the in­crease of the ter­ror­ist at­tacks on Kobani, Pres­i­dent of Kur­dis­tan Re­gion re­it­er­ates the same stance and asks the coun­tries from the in­ter­na­tional coali- tion in the war against IS to co­op­er­ate with Kobani res­i­dents and fight­ers.

Pres­i­dent Barzani also de­mands the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity to help the dis­placed who have taken refuge to the bor­der ar­eas in the north of the city.

In this predica­ment Kobani now is fac­ing, the Pres­i­dency of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion and its peo­ple em­pha­size their support and their al­liance with their brothers and sis­ters in Kobani and Western Kur­dis­tan as a whole.
