SULAIMANI (ESTA) — President of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) Bafel Talabani on Sunday in Baghdad conveyed concerns to the Iranian Ambassador over the recent Iran bombings on the Kurdistan Region.
PUK President received Iranian Ambassador Mohammad-Kazem Ale-Sadegh. In a meeting the officials discussed the latest political developments in the Iraqi political arena, stressing the success in the political process and offering service in various fields, said a press release.
President Talabani has also conveyed the concerns of the PUK regarding the recent Iranian bombings by the Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) on the Kurdish dissidents’ site in the Kurdistan Region, the press release added.
“We are concerned about targeting our people and repeating the attacks,” said Talabani.
“The issues must be resolved through discussion and we stand against violence by all manners and deepening the disputes,” Talabani told the Iranian Ambassador.
IRGC have attacked Iranian Kurdish militant dissidents’ sites since the death of Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini on Sept. 16 triggered nationwide unrest.
Iran has accused Kurdish opposition militants of fomenting the unrest.
In less than one week IRGC has twice bombed the Kurdish opposition bases with the latest one hitting the Free Kurdistan Party in Kirkuk’s Prde sub-district on Tuesday, while witnessing escalation.
Despite the “strong” condemnations from the foreign missions and local authorities, IRGC’s Tuesday attack marked the fourth in the last two months with kept renewing threats to eradicate the Kurdish opposition groups there by using force.
It also has targeted the same sites in Erbil, Koya, and Sulaimani with the bloodiest one dating back to September when IRCG struck the Iranian Kurdistan Democratic Party (PDKI) headquarters in Koya, killing 12 people and leaving above 50 injured with missiles and kamikaze drones.
