BAGHDAD — A Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) delegation has visited Baghdad to discuss a range of issues with government officials.


A source from Baghdad revealed to BasNews that a PKK delegation arrived in the Iraqi capital on December 21st after diplomatic relations between Baghdad and Ankara faced recent challenges.

The source claims that the Iraqi government is considering providing military support to the PKK to use them as a proxy against the Turkish military presence in northern Iraq, which has antagonised the Iranian and Russian governments.

Turkey recently deployed military advisors, accompanied by Turkish troops, to Bashiqa, near Mosul. Ankara insisted that the forces are merely there to train Sunni tribesmen and are not deployed to conduct any military operations. Turkish forces were eventually withdrawn after Baghdad demanded Ankara respect the sovereignty of Iraq.

Kurdish political analyst Fayiq Gulpi told BasNews that fighting a common enemy like Islamic State (IS), and disintegrating relations between Baghdad and Ankara have drawn the PKK and Iraqi government closer.

“Also, excluding Iraq from the Saudi-led Islamic coalition, in which the PKK was determined as a terrorist organisation has bought Iraq and PKK closer against other regional powers,” Gulpi said.

He explained that the Iraqi government may support the PKK by officially recognising the party as an opposition faction of Turkey and allowing it to open a liaison office in Iraq.

Ali Awni, from the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) Leadership Council, believes that an obvious contradiction is apparent in Iraq’s policies: Baghdad supports the PKK but it has neglected the Kurdish Peshmerga Forces who are officially part of Iraq’s defence forces. “Such policies will only cause further problems,” Awni said.

He insisted that Russia and Iran are masterminding an agenda to support the PKK in order to “weaken the Kurdistan Region, and preventing the declaration of an independent state of Kurdistan in the future.”
