PYD con­sid­ers Barzani’s ef­forts as sig­nif­i­cant

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The Demo­cratic Union Party (PYD) Rep­re­sen­ta­tive in the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, Di­yar Qamishli, said that Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani did a na­tional duty in bring­ing all Syr­ian Kur­dis­tan par­ties to­gether.

In an in­ter­view with BasNews, Qamishli be­lieves that the air strikes of US-led coali­tion on the be­sieged city of Kobani against the Is­lamic State mil­i­tants were the re­sult of Barzani’s call for the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity to help Kobane.

Qamishli talked about the cur­rent meet­ings of the Syr­ian Kur­dis­tan (Ro­java) par­ties in the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion that have been go­ing on for two weeks.

“The meet­ings were very im­por­tant es­pe­cially now that Kobani is in a tough sit­u­a­tion. We con­sider the ef­forts of Barzani im­por­tant as well as it is a na­tional duty. We hope all the Kur­dish par­ties, es­pe­cially those which haven't been part of the ad­min­is­tra­tion of the Can­tons in Ro­java, will par­tic­i­pate in the run­ning of the in­ter­nal af­fairs of the Can­tons hence­forth," said Qamishli.

“Barzani has en­cour­aged all Kur­dish po­lit­i­cal par­ties to unite and con­sider the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion of Kurds. The only thing left is the unity of all Kurds,” added Qamishli.

He also hoped that all four parts of Kur­dis­tan will unite be­cause “at­tacks on Kobani mean at­tacks on Er­bil or any other Kur­dish city”.

Qamishli fur­ther ex­plained that Barzani played a pos­i­tive role from the be­gin­ning of Kobani’s cri­sis.

“He played a very im­por­tant role in call­ing US-led coali­tion and in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity to strike IS mil­i­tant bases inside and around Kobani,’ noted the PYD se­nior of­fi­cial from Er­bil.

Com­ment­ing on the mil­i­tary help of Kur­dis­tan Re­gion to Ro­java, Qamishli stated, “We value the demon­stra­tions in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion in support of Ro­java which gen­er­ated pres­sure on the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity to support Kobani. We hope peo­ple con­tinue do­ing this na­tional duty.”

He also men­tioned that the re­la­tion­ship be­tween PYD and Kur­dis­tan Demo­cratic Party (KDP) is get­ting closer. There is hope that some other good meet­ings will be held be­tween both sides, which will im­prove their re­la­tion­ships fur­ther. This will def­i­nitely serve the na­tional in­ter­est of the Kurds.
