Perwizi: ”PDKI’s Peshmerga Forces ready to help PKK in western Kurdistan”

Kerim Perwizi, a member of the PDKI’s leadership, issued a statement declaring that PDKI’s Peshmerga Forces are ready to help PKK (PYD) in Syrian (western) Kurdistan.

The statement reads: “In view of the volatile situation in western Kurdistan, the Democratic Party [PDKI] is ready to deploy Peshmerga forces to western Kurdistan, provided that the PKK makes such a request and agrees to have a joint command to fight enemies of the Kurdish nation and to defend Kurdistan. However, we demand that we wage war on Daesh [Islamic State] as well as the forces of Bashar al Assad. The al-Assad regime is an ally of the Islamic Republic of Iran.”
