Erbil, Kurdistan Region, Iraq (cabinet.gov.krd) - The Presidency of the Council of Ministers released a statement after today’s attacks against the headquarters of two Iranian Kurdistan parties, based in Koysinjaq.

Below is the statement:

The headquarters of the two Iranian Kurdistan Democratic parties, based in Koysinjaq, were bombed this morning by the Islamic Republic of Iran, killing and wounding dozens of people.  

We condemn this attack, while we reaffirm our disapproval of using the Kurdistan Region’s territory for attacks against neighbouring countries. This would undermine the security and stability of the Kurdistan Region. We call for restraint and respect of the laws of Kurdistan, and avoiding turning the Region into a dispute-settling ground.

As we extend our condolences to the families of the victims and wish the wounded a speedy recovery, we assure all parties that the Kurdistan Region will carry out its duty to assist the victims. We have assigned relief teams to do everything possible to help the affected people and civilians in the area.
