The Kur­dis­tan Re­gion is Tak­ing the Right Steps For­ward

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Salam Ab­dul­lah

As it is ob­vi­ous, the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion is im­prov­ing its for­eign re­la­tion day by day; new con­sulates are be­ing opened in the cap­i­tal. There are many fac­tors that made the world trust the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion and es­tab­lish diplo­matic re­la­tions with it. One of them is Kur­dis­tan’s com­mit­ment to the prin­ci­ples of democ­racy, di­ver­sity and hu­man rights which are con­sid­ered the ma­jor prin­ci­ples of build­ing a healthy and civil so­ci­ety by both the Euro­peans and the lib­eral world as well. We’re not say­ing that our coun­try is a utopia and that there’re no short­com­ings in those as­pects and no vi­o­la­tions are made oc­ca­sion­ally, but gen­er­ally it can be said that The Re­gion and the Re­gion’s pres­i­dency is tak­ing the steps to­wards those main prin­ci­ples on which the lib­eral world’s cri­te­rion are based for a demo­cratic so­ci­ety. So it’s not strange that the sud­den at­tacks ISIS ter­ror­ists launched on Kur­dis­tan was be­cause of the Re­gion’s devel­op­ment in democ­racy and build­ing a lib­eral so­ci­ety in which all res­i­dents, no mat­ter of their sex, reli­gion and po­lit­i­cal view can live to­gether peace­fully. It’s this di­rec­tion that ir­ri­tated ISIS and oth­ers in the area to try to ham­per th­ese de­vel­op­ments. There’s also no doubt that this re­al­ity has made the demo­cratic and lib­eral coun­tries to pay spe­cial re­spect and show ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the Re­gion and value its ex­pe­ri­ence and to have tight re­la­tions with it in or­der to sup­port it in all as­pects and to help de­velop this demo­cratic ex­pe­ri­ence in the heart of the chaotic Mid­dle East.

One of the most im­por­tant aids pro­vided to Kur­dis­tan nowa­days is the mil­i­tary sup­port which is about to shift the bal­ance of power in fa­vor of the brave Pesh­merges. Though the aid is not at the level to de- cisively de­ter­mine the fu­ture of the war clearly, but still it is in­creas­ing day by day. As we wit­ness to­day, a de­vel­oped coun­try such as Ger­many de­cides to send more ad­vanced weapons and mil­i­tary ad­vis­ers to Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, which is ap­pre­ci­ated by peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan and its lead­er­ship.

We’re now tak­ing the right steps for­ward, but the ter­ror­ists the wrong. That’s why the fu­ture be­longs to peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan. Shame and dis­grace for those black-flagged, warped ter­ror­ists who are go­ing against the right devel­op­ment of the hu­man his­tory and free­dom.
