Bayık calls on the KDP to stop acting as an agent for Ankara
"If the KDP continues this partnership with the Turkish state, war is inevitable, even if we do not support it," said Cemil Bayık, co-chair of the KCK.
Cemil Bayık, co-chair of the Executive Council of the KCK (Kurdistan Communities Union), said in an interview with the South Kurdistan publication Shar Press, that the KDP (Kurdistan Democratic Party) provides intelligence support and passes on information to the Turkish state. Bayık said: “The KDP is using the flag of South Kurdistan to hide the occupation by the Turkish state. If the KDP continues this partnership with the Turkish state, war is inevitable, even if we do not support it."
“Relationships are based solely on profit”
The Kurdish people must be aware of the relationship between the Barzani clan and the Turkish regime, emphasized the KCK chair, adding: “The Barzani family's relationships with the Turkish state are based exclusively on the logic of profit. The KDP supports the Turkish army in every way. The KDP identifies locations for the Turkish state, informs it about them and provides it with logistical support. It provides information about the areas where the guerrillas are located."
“The Barzanis meet all the demands of the Turkish state”
Referring to Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan's recent meeting with the Barzani family, Bayık explained that the Barzanis' support for the Turkish state increased afterwards. "Isn't it strange that Baghdad does not accept any demands from the Turkish state, but the Barzanis have met all of them," Bayık asked, adding: “The KDP uses the flag of South Kurdistan to protect and hide the occupying soldiers of the Turkish state. What happened in Bradost and Sîdekan is the continuation of the Turkish state's invasion attacks against the Medya Defense Areas. It seems that what happened in Bradost is a product of the meeting between Hakan Fidan and the Barzanis."
“They want to intimidate the people of Sulaymaniyah”
Speaking about the Turkish drone attack on Arbet Airport in Sulaymaniyah on 18 September, Bayık said: “The purpose of the attack on Arbet Airport is to scare the people of Sulaymaniyah and Soran. Just as the Behdinan region has become the center of the Turkish occupying state and MIT with the support of the KDP, they want to bring this area under the control of MIT by intimidating people. They also want to scare the PUK (Patriotic Union of Kurdistan) and make it a partner of the Turkish state like the KDP. The people of Sulaymaniyah and Soran have not given up their patriotic line. For this reason, the Turkish state repeatedly organizes attacks there. We have full confidence that the people of Sulaymaniyah and Soran will keep their patriotism to the end."
