Bri­tish of­fi­cials prom­ise to con­tinue sup­port­ing Kur­dis­tan

Kur­dish VP: Kurds have never been as united as they cur­rently are

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Vice Pres­i­dent Kos­rat Ra­sul Ali re­ceived a U.K. del­e­ga­tion headed by Sir Richard O’Tady, Ms. Belinda Lewis, Deputy UK Am­bas­sador to Iraq and a num­ber of mem­bers of the Bri­tish Par­lia­ment from both the Labour Party and Preser­va­tive Party.

Vice Pres­i­dent Ali wel­comed the del­e­ga­tion and hailed the con­tin­u­ous support the UK has been giv­ing Kur­dis­tan in hard times in the re­cent his­tory, such as cre­at­ing the no-fly zone with the U.S. and France in 1991 to pro­tect Kurds, and their ef­fec­tive role in the Op­er­a­tion Iraqi Free­dom in 2003.

Ali also said UK is play­ing a great role in the war against the Is­lamic State ISIS ter­ror­ists by par­tic­i­pat­ing in the in­ter­na­tional coali­tion against the group as well as train­ing and sup­port­ing Pesh­marga Forces di­rectly. “We can win this war on the bases of sub­jec­tive and ob­jec­tive sit­u­a­tions,” said VP Ali. “At home all Kurds are back­ing each other; in the his­tory Kurds from all parts of Kur­dis­tan, have never been as united as they cur­rently are. All the Kur­dish po­lit­i­cal par­ties have one ob­jec­tive, which is lib­er­a­tion of their na­tion. More­over the in­ter­na­tional com- mu­nity has never been so sup­port­ive and help­ful to Kurds.”

The del­e­ga­tion stated that they have vis­ited Kur­dis­tan to see the sit­u­a­tions closely and pass the im­age of the Kur­dish democ­racy and fight­ing for home­land to the U.K.

“Kur­dish young men and women proved they are at­tached to their home­land and pro­tect it to the last drops of their blood,” said the head of the del­e­ga­tion. “We as the Bri­tish na­tion prom­ise to con­tinue to support and help you to the end of the road in all mil­i­tary and hu­man­i­tar­ian ways.”
