British officials promise to continue supporting Kurdistan
Kurdish VP: Kurds have never been as united as they currently are
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.”
