ERBIL - The military confrontation between the Kurdish opposition armed group and the Islamic Republic of Iran does not resolve the issues between sides as much as diplomatic means do, the Kurdistan Regional Government's (KRG) representative to Tehran Nazim Dabbagh said on Monday.

Speaking to BasNews, the Kurdish envoy hoped that the Kurdish sides continue their activities through diplomatic, political, social, and intellectual methods, urging them to avoid military conflict as it might ruin the security of the Kurdistan Region.

"Based on [our] experience, military conflicts do not help us get close to our goals as much as diplomatic means do," Dabbagh said. "Apart from the fact that such confrontations only please the enemies of Kurds, the Kurdistan Region and Islamic Republic of Iran, I have sometimes heard that the activities were denied to have been carried out by the political sides present in the Kurdistan Region."

Concerning the death penalties against the Kurdish activists in Iran, the Kurdish official explained to BasNews that it is part of the country's policies to ensure its national security.

"This happens in whole world, including the Kurdistan Region. For instance, if the Kurdistan Region feels there is an activity against its regional security, and arrests some people accused of the issues, how would the Kurdistan Region react to it, in your opinion?," Dabbagh argued.

TEHRAN – Nazem Dabbagh, a representative of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), says the Islamic Republic of Iran’s policy towards the KRG has always been based on good relation and ethnical, cultural and racial commonalities, and predicted the relation would remain good in the future.

Visiting Iran News pavilion in the 23rd Press and News Agencies Exhibition, Dabbagh reiterated that he has time and again said that Iran is more transparent and honest than other countries. He noted that from the day one, Iran has opposed the referendum in the region but it has also announced readiness to defend the rights of people in the region based on the Iraq Constitution and for the sake of unity in Iraq.

Dabbagh said that Iraqi Kurds will never forget Iran’s support against the atrocities of Saddam Regime as well as against the Daesh forces. He concluded that for Iraqi Kurds, Iran’s stand is different from others.

He went on to say that Iraqi Kurdistan referendum is a finished issue, adding that since Masoud Barzani has suspended the referendum, it is expected talks with the central government to begin soon.

He reiterated that if the Iraqi government sticks to its words and undertakings, people of the KRG will not pursue partition.

Dabbagh went on to say that the KRG officials did not mean partition by holding referendum, and it was just a sign of protest to the central government for injustice against Kurds. He reiterated that when a government does not fulfill its undertakings towards its people, it then should expect protests and reactions.

On the support of Israel from independence of Iraqi Kurdistan, he said it was just a propagation because there is no bond between Iraqi Kurdistan and Israel. He noted that most of the KRG’s officials were aware of the dangers of Israel’s support because several Arab countries like Egypt, Jordan or Qatar have embassies in Tel Aviv and such a support was aimed at creating rift.

On the future of leadership of the KRG, he said Masoud Bazani is a charismatic leader for Kurds in the region and it is not expected him to run for leadership after his term is over. He added that he would support a certain candidate or group which has not been revealed yet.

 TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The representative of the Iraqi Kurdistan region praised Iran’s role in the Arab country’s recent victories over the Daesh (ISIS or ISIL) terrorist group and said if it had not been for the Islamic Republic’s assistance, Iraq would have fallen to the hands of the terrorists.

Speaking at a forum titled “Iraq after Daesh” held in Tehran on Wednesday, Nazem Dabbagh pointed to the recent recapture of the northern city of Mosul from Daesh terrorists and said the terrorist group has been forced out of Mosul but it is not over yet.

“Daesh is not just a military issue but has become a phenomenon and ideology,” the Iraqi diplomat said.

He further pointed to Tehran’s support for Baghdad in the fight against the terror group, saying that if it had not been for Iran’s assistance, Iraq would have fallen to the hands of Daesh.

Daesh militants made swift advances in northern and western Iraq over the summer of 2014, after capturing swaths of northern Syria.

However, a combination of concentrated attacks by the Iraqi military and the volunteer forces, who rushed to take arms after top Shiite leader Grand Ayatollah Seyed Ali al-Sistani issued a fatwa calling for the fight against the militants, blunted the edge of Daesh offensive and forced the terrorist group to withdraw from much of the areas it had occupied.

Iraqi military forces on July 29 captured the Mosul mosque at the heart of the northern city, which Daesh had declared its de facto capital.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced the liberation of the site of the symbolic al-Nuri Mosque in Old Mosul as “the declaration of the end of the statelet of Daesh.”

Daesh stronghold in Syria’s Raqqa is also close to falling.
