Concerning Kubani events Etemad Press asked for Mr. Dabbagh’s view of which the most important parts as followed:

In the response to the question he answered: the confirmation of 40% occupation of Kubani by ISIS is under doubt. But he stated that presently by Kubanian people resisting against ISIS it seems it will be difficult to occupy this city. Although they have been surrounded by three sides, by such these little weapons they have been able to confront ISIS, if they have proper equipment they can set them back from Kubani.  

Concerning the role of Turkey he said: that turkey will permit not any help to be given to Kubani. Despite of written request of the president of Kurdistan region this country has only settled its tanks on borders and it has done nothing special more. Dabbagh said: to give any help from Kurdistan Region to the Kurds of Syria is so difficult for loss of land communication. He added: Turkey is expected as a democrat country, a member of NATO and an Islamic country and in accordance with the human right …take an action toward ISIS.

Dabbagh already said that the airstrike of the coalition affect a little. If accompanied with these attacks Kurds are supported it can be workable. He said he does not expect foreign forces to enter the region.  About the claim saying if Kurds access the advanced weapons may cause another crisis he considered it just as a pretext. In his view these equipment is just used to defend people of Kurd. Kurds want according to the constitution of the country in which the live begin to work.

Concerning the changes in Kubani, Nazem Dabbagh had an interview with analysis-oriented news weekly of Seda whose important points follow:

In Dabbagh’s views defeating of ISIS in attacking Kurdistan Region and Shingal mount caused it think of Kubani. He knew it probable that attacking Kubani was to strengthen ISIS position to attack Baghdad. He added that all Kurdish Pishmega support to release Kubani has a special role. He acclaimed that to support Kubani many groups entered the battlefield. He also added Kubani was served by some help of which was military and medical from America. In addition one of America’s aids to Kubani was bombing ISIS positions by American fighters which were accompanied with much loss. He also said that I.R. of Iran from early days rushed to help people and offered his humanity and friendly military aids to Kurdistan Region of Iraq. But he claimed he had not been given any news ascertaining Iran’s help to Kubani, although he was not sure about. In a part of his phrases he deemed the phenomena of ISIS and terrorism as axis for endangered countries like Kurdistan region of Iraq, Iraq and Iran to get unified and it leads both sides relations warm.

Dabbagh claimed that international and regional support from Iraqi Kurds than Syrians was somewhat more whereas most countries of the world and region did not already have negative view toward ISIS. If ISIS dominated the Region, regarding the potentials of oil and energy in the Region, it would probably get greatly powerful. Thus Dabbagh believes that the importance of Kubani is not less than Kurdistan Region. He said ISIS thinks that to dominate Kubani is not such difficult.

About America’s announcement according to the priority of oil and refinery resources to Kubani, Nazem Dabbagh said that basically the USA’s policy is his benefits, so they pay more attention to the resources of the region. Furthermore if ISIS dominates oil resources it will be so powerful, thus America’s concern is aimed at oil wells and refineries.

As continuing his talking he criticized Turkey’s policy toward ISIS, however he appreciated Turkeys for changing his positions about the permission according to which Kurdish forces can go through his land. At last Dabbagh mentioned that the presence of ISIS in Iraq has indicated that if we are not allied and do not solve the domestic problems, it will lead nothing but ISIS presence; and he hopped the new government of Iraq with the participation of all political groups in Iraq would be formed.

Nazem Dabbagh the representative of Kurdistan region of Iraq in Tehran pointing out that Kurds believe to halt ISIS to grow in the region said: we prefer our friends (Iran) to be the forerunner of this.

Nazem Dabbagh the representative KRG in Iran talking with foreign policy and international reporter of Fars News Agency concerning the formation of a real coalition against ISIS said: to attack ISIS as a terrorist group is a general benefit. If these happens any point in the world, it will be good. In my opinion the difference between powers causes ISIS to penetrate deeper in the region. It is no different which the leader of the fighting against ISIS is America, Iran, Kurd or Arab. Their complete destruction is only important. He reminded: Kurds have tribal and geographical considerations in common and is close to this country and it is unchangeable. According to the close relationship with I.R of Iran we welcome this that I.R. of Iran takes more actions against ISIS. In current situations we support to attach ISIS and this is not different, and we have always emphasized that there is a good relation between Iran and Kurdistan Region and we witnessed this in Mr. Zarif news meeting when he was in Erbil concerning how to have bilateral cooperation.

He stated: what I am asking is that not to let these differences on concerns in the region causes ISIS grow. I prefer our friends (Iran) to be forerunner of this. There are Ba’ath and other group grown by Takfiri and it was they who created the Syrian and Iraqi government. Nazem Dabbagh also pointed out at the end: maybe now we witness them weakening but we get carless this weakness causes them to grow. I.R. of Iran, Europe and America have to do something till ISIS get destructed but weakened.

To analyze the current situations of Kubani and the regional countries’ positions toward this crisis, JARAS went to Nazem Dabbagh the official representative KRG of Iraq in Iran. The main says as followed:

In the response to the first question he answered: the concern of Kubani is sensitive and the governments wanting ISIS to win should consider that if it happens so, it will cause insecurity in their countries. It is already experienced that when the security and intelligence agencies look for to create a crisis the outcome of it does aim themselves, since after the coalition formed the attacks of ISIS have got more. He alerted that the fall of Kubani will follow critical results. Thus the regional countries have to become alert and know that the terrorists just work for their benefit and cannot meet the countries’ needs supporting them.

Concerning the helps from Kurdistan Region of Iraq to Kubanian people, Dabbagh said: there are two concerns about this. One is the geography of Kubani which the only way to reach it is through Turkey borders but Turkey has shut the Kubani entrances, whereas, in letter the president of the KRG of Iraq has asked Turkey to give the permission to help Kubanian people.

Dabbagh considers Turkey policy to close the borders and to prevent P.K.K Kurds from entering Kubani as binary policy. On the one hand Ahmad Davoud Ughlu the prime minister of Turkey said they will not allow Kubani to be occupied by ISIS. On the other hand the president of the country states that Kubani has fallen and ISIS has occupied it. In addition Dabbagh know it illogical and unfair of Erdugan to consider P.K.K and ISIS the same, since Dabbagh belies that they are naturally different.

As continuing Dabbagh said: the airstrike simply cannot cause ISIS to be defeated so land attack is needed. These attacks don’t have to be just superficial and to weaken ISIS but it must be strictly and aim to completely destroy it. At last Dabbagh Said: As I.R.Iran has not failed to help Syrian and Iraqi people, it should also interfere in Kubani concern.

Dr. Muhammad Seddigh Ahmad in a response to question concerning the roots of the emergence of ISIS believes the roots of it should be sought in its roots.

The root of the emergence of ISIS is the central government of Iraq fault of neglecting democracy strategies and of not considering ballots and thoughts of groups. By this way of the government not only the former problems were not solved, but also caused lots of new problems of which the most important one was ISIS. Dr.Ahmad also believes that after 80 or 90 years established of Iraq government it was tried to form a democratic structure, but despite of the declaration of the Constitutes and the potentials of current governors of Iraq there is not so difference as compared to the formers.

The deputy-representative of KRG in Iran said that the most important reason of not resisting ISIS was public discontent among Sunnite, thus it caused them not to confront ISIS. Even some tribes not only resisted but they also supported ISIS. In addition to frightening actions of ISIS, Iraq authorities uncaring concerning the danger of ISIS infiltration in Iraq army and the possibility of some military elements’ betrayal can be deemed as one the reasons for ISIS to get stronger.

Dr. Ahmad considered the occupation of some Kurdish regions abandoned by the Iraq army against ISIS as the protection of those regions. Indeed these regions are Kurdish and under the KRG and the government dispute. But as the army escaped the regions got endangered by ISIS so Pishmerga forces presented in there to halt ISIS from occupying. Besides he knew ISIS limited infiltration in the Kurdish region for their being equipped with heavy weapons as Pishmergas having just light ones and for possible mismanagements.

Dr. Ahmad also mentioned the civilization ties between Iran and Kurds and said Iran’s help was on time and got appreciated by the president of the region. Nevertheless he believes that Turkey’s position to ISIS will not cause to be put aside from the KRG’s foreign policy, but the KRG wants to keep balance on its foreign policy. Furthermore in a part of his phrases he mentioned America’s attack against ISIS and said these attacks were workable to ISIS to withdraw.

Dr. Ahmad in response to the questions considered Jalal Talibani as a fighter leader and qualified president of Kurd, Masoud Barzani as the symbol of freedom, peace and democracy of Kurdistan nation, Ayatollah Sistani as the respected and impressive personification of the Islamic world, Ammar Hakim as the reminder of moderate leadership of Shia, Fuad Masum As the revolutionary and experienced politician and Ghasem Soleimani as a very powerful and impressive personification in foreign policy of Iran. At last Dr. Ahmad expressed hope concerning ISIS to be defeated and peace to return the country.
