“Du­ran Kalkan is one of the PKK lead­ers who talks with a rough lan­guage full of ha­tred to­wards the achieve­ments and the will of the peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, for which thou­sands of young Kur­dish he­roes have sac­ri­ficed their lives, and who still pro­tect it with their lives and bloods, makes ir­re­spon­si­ble state­ments and asks for the abo­li­tion of the sys­tem that has been elected in a lib­eral demo­cratic process; a sys­tem which is an ex­am­ple of co­ex­is­tence, where all eth­nic and re­li­gious com­po­nents of the Re­gion are rep­re­sented, and has gained re­spect and recog­ni­tion by the whole in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity,” said Diza­yee.

Diza­yee also added that Kur­dis­tan Re­gion has es­tab­lished its own po­lit­i­cal and ad­min­is­tra­tive sys­tem on the bases of elec­tion, the free will of peo­ple of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, and it has been in com­pli­ance with the Iraqi Con­sti­tu­tion and its laws and has been rec­og­nized by the in­ter­na­tional com- mu­nity.

“[Kur­dis­tan Re­gion] does not need ad­vice from peo­ple who have proved by ex­pe­ri­ence that wher­ever they are, there is no free­dom, democ­racy, co­ex­is­tence, tol­er­ance or any other such con­cepts and val­ues on which the free and mod­ern world are es­tab­lished,” Diza­yee con­tin­ued. “There are only uni­lat­er­al­ism, self­im­pos­ing, in­tol­er­ance, op­pres­sion and sup­pres­sion of those who are not with them. And this is crys­tal clear to ev­ery­one and does not need ex­pla­na­tion.”

Diza­yee told the web­site that the sys­tem in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion con­sists of all the po­lit­i­cal, eth­nic and re­li­gious en­ti­ties, and works for the unity of the peo­ple of Kur­dis­tan, rather than for di­vi­sion and col­lapse and sep­a­ra­tion of ar­eas and di­alects to fur­ther divide Kur­dis­tan.

“It has also given full author­ity and de­cen­tral­ized power to the prov­inces and ad­min­is­tra­tive units, and thanks to this sys­tem Kur­dis­tan Re­gion is cur­rently one of the most de­vel­oped ar­eas in the re­gion and has at­tracted the whole world and in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity; hence such state­ments are in no way ac­cept­able and only proves ig­no­rance and ha­tred of their own­ers and noth­ing else.”
