Iraqi Kurdistan hails Iran role in fighting terrorism

Tehran, May 5, IRNA — Nazim Dabbagh, representative of the Iraqi Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) in Tehran, said in an interview that Iran plays active and positive role in fight with terrorism.

Referring to the regional cooperation in dealing with the issue of terrorism, Dabbagh said terrorism is not a threat for just a country but for a region and even the world.

Asked about the massacre of Kurd people by the Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein (killed in 2006), Dabbagh said the KRG is trying to follow up the case through international societies.

He lamented double-standard behavior of the countries which are so-called advocates of fight against terrorism.

Hailing Iran’s role in combat with terrorists, he appreciated Tehran’s aid to the Iraqi nation and Iraqi Kurdistan.

About the terrorist Mojahedeen-e Khalq Organization (MKO), Dabbagh said it is not as effective as it was in Iraq in the past.
