KDP and PUK Work To­gether in the Cri­sis

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The polit­buros of Kur­dis­tan Demo­cratic Party, KDP, and Pa­tri­otic Union of Kur­dis­tan, PUK, met in Er­bil, cap­i­tal of the semi-au­ton­o­mous Kur­dis­tan Re­gion of Iraq.

The KDP del­e­ga­tion led by Nechir­van Barzani, Deputy to KDP leader, Fad­hil Mi­rani, Sec­re­tary of KDP polit­buro, two mem­bers of polit­buro Mah­moud Mo­hammed, Kaka Amin Najar and mem­ber of KDP lead­er­ship coun­cil Delshad Sha­hab.

The PUK del­e­ga­tion was led by Mala Bakhti­yar, Head of Ex­ec­u­tive Body of PUK polit­buro, with Qubad Tal­a­bani, Saadi Ahmed Pira, Omer fatah and Rez­gar Ali, mem­bers of polit­buro.

A KDP ne­go­tia­tor re­vealed the de­tail of the meet­ing and said that they are work­ing to­gether.

A PUK ne­go­tia­tor stated that the meet­ing was very pos­i­tive, both stress­ing on mak­ing the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion bet­ter.

Delshad Sha­hab, one of the KDP del­e­ga­tion mem­bers, an­nounced that the aim of the meet­ing was to dis­cuss the bi­lat­eral re­la­tions and the mech­a­nism of work­ing to­gether in the fu­ture.

De­spite stress­ing the cur­rent political, fi­nan- cial and se­cu­rity is­sues as well as the govern­ment and par­lia­ment dis­putes and the re­gional changes, the main two strong Kur­dish par­ties had a com­mon un­der­stand­ing about hav­ing one united stance in or­der to face the dif­fi­cul­ties.

How­ever, there had been dif­fer­ent opin­ions on the ex­ten­sion of the strate­gic agree­ment made be­tween them, Sha­hab em­pha­sized that they have reached a com­mon un­der­stand­ing to keep con­tin­u­ing it, adding that there might had been some points to be im­proved and they are agreed to do be­cause it would be in the in­ter­est of the peo­ple.

The two par­ties re­peated fre­quently that the agree­ment was a main fac­tor of political sta­bil­ity, pros­per­ity and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment in the past.

Saadi Pira from the PUK polit­buro con­firmed that the two par­ties work to­gether to pass the cri­sis to­gether and on the ba­sis of com­mon in­ter­ests. He added that his party has a pro­ject to bring the dis­puted par­ties to­gether on the ne­go­ti­a­tion ta­ble be­cause they have to sit to­gether fi­nally.

Pira fur­ther said that the meet­ing fo­cused on mak- ing the sit­u­a­tion bet­ter.

The KDP has re­ceived the PUK pro­ject which is de­signed to re­solve the dis­putes. They are study­ing it and will re­spond the PUK about the de­tails of the pro­ject.
