Mustafa Hijri’s Congratulation Letter to President Donald J. Trump
Dear President Donald J. Trump,
I extend our warmest congratulations on your election as the 45th President of the United States of America.
As you prepare to take on the responsibilities and challenges of your office, we hope that you will be able to play an important role in bringing peace and stability to the Middle East by supporting all oppressed nations, but also by combating dictatorship and state-sponsored terrorism.
For more than hundred years, the Kurdish nation has struggled for freedom, equality, and its national rights. Our party, the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan, has been at the forefront of this struggle for the Kurdish nation’s rights in Iran. The Islamic Republic of Iran has for more than three decades brutally suppressed our attempts to attain freedom. Thousands of our party’s members and Peshmerga have been killed during this period.
The Islamist regime in Iran does not only subject the Kurdish people to the worst forms of oppression, but it has also drastically increased its interference and influence in many countries of the Middle East by funding and supporting terrorism, which in turn have resulted in intractable conflicts and instability. We believe that in order to move our region toward stability and peace, the Islamic Republic of Iran’s influence must be diminished by putting the Islamist regime in Tehran under pressure. The best way to achieve this is to support the different oppressed nations of Iran, especially the Kurdish nation, in their struggle to attain freedom and their rights.
We hope that through support for and cooperation with us and other nations in the Middle East, you will be able to help bring about peace and stability in this part of the world.
We also look forward to working with your administration not only to develop closer relations between us, but also to coordinate our efforts for the cause of freedom and peace.
Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan
