A prominent politician and Duhok University lecturer Kamuran Berwarî was a live guest of KDP affiliated medya platform Rudaw. He commented strongly against the military operations of Turkey against the Metina, Zap and Avashin regions and criticised the position of the KDP.
“Kurdistan is not the garden of the invaders. Kurdistan is one piece, the Kurds are one people. The history of the Kurds is one, and their future should be one.”
He underlined the importance of unity among Kurds: “No one has the right to divide Kurdistan. We cannot establish a state by setting borders within ourselves and it will never serve anything positive for the Kurdish people”
After the Rudaw host, panicking, intervened, objected and gave an example from Shiladze, where local people stormed a Turkish army base based in the eastern Dohuk region after Turkish warplanes killed local civilians. Turkish sources at the time blamed the PKK for the incident which was parroted by the KDP controlled media. Kamuran Berwarî responded as follows.
“The cause of the incident in Shiladze was not the PKK. Those responsible for this incident are those who allowed Turkey to establish 18 bases in and around Shiladze. They are the ones who allow them and the MIT to establish bases in the region.”
Defining Turkey as an invader in the region, Doctor Berwari added and continued: “Those who prevent the people from taking to the streets against the invasion attacks are responsible for this incident.Those who allowed MIT [Turkish military intelligence] to establish a base in Girê Basê are responsible for this incident.”
Finally Kamuran Berwarî said that no one has the right to prevent the PKK’s philosophy from being heard in Kurdish society.
He made a proposal to establish a commission: “If the PKK has been involved let’s judge together. If the KDP is unjust, if the PUK is unjust, let’s say it, let’s judge together.”
