Iran has asked Kurds not to get involved in the Shiite-Sunni dispute in Iraq: envoy

The representative of the Kurdistan Regional Government in Tehran, said that Iran called on the Iraqi Kurds not to get involved in the disputes between Shiites and Sunnis in the country.

Referring to the recent visit of the Iran Qods Force Commander, Esmail Qaani's, to Iraq and the Kurdistan Region, Nazim Dabbagh said that the visit was to calm the situation in Iraq, especially after the protests against the results of the parliamentary elections and the assassination attempt against Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi, adding that the role of Iran in Iraq is not a new issue, and Iran cares about the security and stability of Iraq as much as it cares about its security and stability.

The Kurdistan Regional Government representative in Tehran stressed that the assassination attempt on the Iraqi Prime Minister is against Iran's interests and that it is not in anyone's interest to see Iran and Iraq to assassinate the figures of the other side.

He stated that in his opinion, General Qaani stressed to various Iraqi parties and movements that they should accept the results of the Iraqi elections.

He also added that Qaani had previously made visits to the Kurdistan region during his travels to Iraq, which means that the Kurds are important for Iran in maintaining balance in Iraq and that Iran's message to the Kurds was that they should not get involved in conflicts between Shiite and Sunni movements.

Nazim Dabbagh went on to say that Qaani had told the Kurds that once the Shiite movements reached an agreement, they would be able to support the movements, which represents all Shiites.

The envoy stressed that the Kurds cannot stay against one front and stand by another, because for the Kurds Iran is not a country that can support the Kurdish region at all times, and on the other hand, the Kurds cannot fully trust the United States and other countries and they must maintain their neutrality in this situations.
