Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani sent a let­ter of seven points to the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment’s (KRG) Min­istry of Pesh­marga, giv­ing new sig­nif­i­cant in­struc­tors to the min­istry. The in­struc­tors give au­thor­ity to the min­istry to unify and re­or­ga­nize the struc­ture of the min­istry as well as pro­hibit­ing party ac­tiv­i­ties.

Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani sent a let­ter of seven points to the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment’s Min­istry of Pesh­marga, giv­ing new sig­nif­i­cant in­struc­tions to the Min­istry. The in­struc­tions give au­thor­ity to the Min­istry to unify and re­or­ga­nize the struc­ture of the Pesh­marga forces as well as pro­hibit­ing any party ac­tiv­i­ties hence­for­ward.

Be­low is the con­tent of the let­ter:

To: Min­istry of Pesh­marga of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment Sub­ject: In­struc­tions The Min­istry of Pesh­marga, which is very sig­nif­i­cant and shoul­ders a dif­fi­cult and sa­cred mis­sion, be­longs to all the peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan. Now, the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment has a broad-based cab­i­net, not a 50 by 50 cab­i­net of two par­ties as be­fore. That's why the con­duct of the com­man­ders of the Min­istry has to be pa­tri­otic and not mo­ti­vated by any party pol­i­tics.

The points be­low have to be taken into con­sid­er­a­tion:

1- Party and or­ga­ni­za­tional ac­tiv­i­ties are for­bid­den inside the Min­istry. Any­one who wants to carry out party ac­tiv­i­ties has to re­sign and join his/her party.

2- Dis­tri­bu­tion of weapons and ammunitions are based on the ne­ces­sity of the front­lines, not based on 50 by 50 of the par­ties.

3- Bud­get of the Pesh­marga forces, in­clud­ing of the 70th and 80th di­vi­sions, has to be dis­trib­uted by Min­istry of Pesh­marga, not as be­fore.

4- It is nec­es­sary that the Pesh­marga forces are uni­fied as soon as pos­si­ble in a way that party ac­tiv­i­ties are not per­mit­ted.

5- Changes have to be made re­gard­ing com­man­ders that have been un­able to carry out their mis­sions well in the fight against ter­ror­ists. Ac­tive and ef­fi­cient com­man­ders should re­place them in­stead.

6- Any em­ployee in the Min­istry, at any level, would be pun­ished if he sub­mits any re­port to his party about the ac­tiv­i­ties of the Min­istry.

7- Any force out­side the Min­istry would be con­sid­ered il­le­gal. No one is al­lowed to form a new armed force of his own.
