Head of the National Union bloc: Turkey wants to differentiate between Sulaymaniyah and Arbil

Sulaymaniyah – Head of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan in the House of Representatives Areez Abdullah stressed that the Turkish government seeks to differentiate between Erbil and Sulaymaniyah.

“What Turkey is doing in the Region is not only a threat to the Kurdistan region or the Sulaymaniyah airport, but to all parts of the Middle East,” Abdullah said in a press statement.

He added that “Turkey wants to differentiate between Erbil and Sulaymaniyah after its occupation of the city of Afrin, western Kurdistan, and the bombing it carried out several days ago to areas in the region.”

Head of the Union bloc said that there is no risk on the Turkish flights to Sulaymaniyah International Airport, but Turkey wants to say that the cities of Erbil and Sulaymaniyah vary, and this shows everyone what is meant by these statements and the risks they pose to the future of the Kurdistan region.

Areez Abdullah called on the international community to pressure Turkey to limit its interference in Iraq and Syria.
