Iranian Kurdish leaders discuss the future of Kurds in Iran at a MERI conference

On October 25th, the Middle East Research Institute (MERI) organized a conference for Iranian Kurdish leaders. Komala’s secretary general, Abdullah Mohtadi, once again urged all Kurdish opposition to start a platform so as to be able to negotiate with the Iranian regime jointly, in the event this possibility arises. Abdullah Mohtadi stressed that as opposition, all parties have a lot of common interests, such as the acknowledgement of Kurdish political parties within Iran, the acknowledgement of the Kurdish language and the holding of free and fair elections according to International standards, among others. By setting up such a platform an opportunity is created to jointly issue Kurdish requests internationally. Furthermore, Abdullah Mohtadi urged the need to start a congress for Iranian Kurds to assemble Kurds and to act as a representative of the Kurds in Iran in which not only political parties and politicians but also citizens can take part

On Monday October 17th, 2016, the Middle East Research Institute (MERI) organized a special seminar on the future for Kurdistan in Erbil in which Komala’s secretary general, Abduallah Mohtadi, was a guest speaker.

Within his speech, Abdullah Mohtadi explained that Kurds play a pivotal role for change within the region. Kurdish freedom movements within Iranian kurdistan form a common platform in overcoming these obstacles for freedom, especially in achieving basic human rights. He continued by suggesting that it is of particular importance for the Kurdish movement that all Kurdish parties cooperate and coordinate accordingly. One way to do this is to form a Kurdish platform in which political parties come together to discuss important issues and to cooperate on achieving these issues. Komala Party of Iranian Kurdistn is ready to set up such a platform and welcomes all other Kurdish political parties to join us, bilaterally of multilaterally.
