Kurds should not forget Iran's support in fighting against ISIS: representative

 Representative of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) in Tehran Nazim Dabagh said on Monday, January 25, that the Kurds should not forget the aid provided by Iran during the war against Islamic State (ISIS), arguing that ISIS would have occupied Baghdad if it were not for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Quds Force Commander Qassem Soleimani.

Dabagh told NRT in an interview that when the Peshmerga and advisors from the IRGC arrived in the Hamrin Mountains, Soleimani said to the Peshmerga “here is Hamrin Mountain; this is your border, defend it for Mam Jalal,” referring to the late Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) leader Jalal Talabani.
Earlier this week, the Masir media agency in Iran released a short film featuring a dramatized version of Soleimani’s cooperation with the Kurdistan Region during the ISIS war, which provoked intense criticism from the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) for its depiction of party leader Masoud Barzani.
Dabagh, who is a member of the PUK, said that the KDP has the strongest ties with Iran of all of the political parties in the Kurdistan Region, but added that the film concerned the KRG and noted that the depiction of Barzani had been condemned by some Iranian officials.
“The Iranian government has promised us to follow up about the release of the film and that the release of the film about Masoud Barzani has not been done by an official organ of the Iranian government,” he said.
