Kurdish Diaspora supports referendum of Kurdistan

by Roni Alasor

Cologne-Germany, 27 August 2017 - Middle East Diplomatic (MED) - Last Saturday, thousands of Kurds and citizens of Kurdistan gathered in the German city Cologne to express their support for the Kurdish referendum, which will take place in Kurdistan Region (KRG) on 25 September 2017.

The initiators and organisers of the peaceful festival and thousands of European Kurds wearing Kurdish national dresses and waving Kurdish flags under Kurdish patriotic songs, asked the United Nations and the world community to respect the Kurdish self determination rights. They said that it is a shame for humanity when approximately 45 million Kurds still do not have their own state in the 21st century.

Earlier, the President of the Kurdistan Region Masoud Barzani said that the people of Kurdistan Region have the right to decide on their future whether they want to remain as part of Iraq or secede from the rest of the country. President Barzani underlined that there is no turning back in holding the referendum, since Kurds do not have any international – regional guaranty for their future and they are suffering from brutal regimes in many hundred years.

Speaking to Middle East Diplomatic, Dellawer Ajgeiy, the Head of Kurdistan Regional Government’s (KRG) Mission to the EU, said that the huge support for the historical event of Kurdistan referendum is also a clear message to governments of the EU countries, which are home for around 2 million Kurds, just 1 million of them living in Germany: “Kurds and people of Kurdistan who live in Europe also have right to vote for European parties during national elections in their country of residence. Being against their will is not in favour of getting their support. Kurds in EU generally support these European political parties, which support openly Kurdistan”.

45 million stateless Kurds and their homeland Greater Kurdistan is today divided by Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey since the Lausanne treaty in 1923 when super powers betrayed Kurds.
