The Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and Turkey have agreed that the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) should be a province of Turkey, the Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK) Executive Council Co-Chair Besê Hozat told daily Yeni Özgür Politika.
Hozat stated that it is no longer a secret that the KDP has made agreements with Turkey, specifically a 50-year agreement on oil and natural gas.
Through the means of these agreements Turkey is trying to impose its political and military dominance as far as Mosul and Kirkuk, and it aims to reach the borders of the National Pact (‘Misak-ı Milli’ ratified in the last Ottoman parliament), Turkey’s dream of a century, she said.
“The KDP supports Turkey’s plan to implement the National Pact. According to this plan, they seem to have agreed to make Iraqi Kurdistan a province of Turkey,” she added.
The active support of the KDP to the Turkish state in KRI and Rojava (West Kurdistan) is related to this secret agreement, she noted.
“Turkey will occupy and annex Iraqi Kurdistan, making it a province dependent on Turkey, and appoint one of the Barzanis as its governor. They seem to have agreed on this.”
Mesrur Barzani, who had a meeting in the UK, aimed to get the support of the UK and Europe for the agreements the KDP made with Erdoğan, she also stated.
“The KDP does not have a Kurdish cause. KDP aims to grow financially by marketing the resources of Kurdistan to the genocidal colonialist Turkish state. So much so that the Barzani family competes with the richest of the world with their assets in the USA, Europe, Turkey, and the Gulf countries.”
Stating that the situation in the region has recently turned into a war of hegemony, Hozat said that Iran perceives Turkey as a threat in the region.
“The missile attacks on Hewler [KRI capital Erbil] can also be read as Iran’s message to the USA, Israel, Turkey, and the KDP,” she said.
