Turkey is alleged to have purchased lands in South Kurdistan

Radio Politic Press, broadcasting in South Kurdistan, has voiced important allegations over the plunder of nature by the Turkish state in Kurdish soils.

New information and documents have been revealed concerning the occupation attacks of the Turkish state against South Kurdistan (Bashur) and the cooperation of the ruling KDP party in these attacks.

The destruction of the nature of Kurdistan in the Turkish occupied areas has sparked reactions.


According to a report of the radio website Politic Press, Turkish Ambassador to Hewler (Erbil), Hakan Karaçay visited KDP Deputy Speaker of Parliament Hêmin Hawrami. It is reported that Karaçay responded to the criticism against the plunder of nature by the Turkish state.

"It is not right for you to react to us this way. We bought the lands where we are currently stationed. We have also bought the sites where our military bases are located. We have an agreement on this issue. The publications and propaganda disseminated through the press in Bashur are not correct. We build roads in places where we bought lands. We cut down trees where we need to do so for road construction," Karaçay told Hawrami.

The Politic Press report states that during the meeting, Karaçay gave two documents to Hawrami to be submitted to Masrour ​​and Nechirvan Barzani. The documents contain accounts that Turkey cut down trees and forests only in the areas and fields they have bought.

The Politic Press report also reveals that some lands and regions in Behdinan were sold to Turkey, not only during the Masrour Barzani government, but also during the previous Nechirvan Barzani government.

The report also claims that during Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Kadhimi's visit to Ankara, Turkish president Erdogan conveyed to Kadhimi that Turkey had purchased lands in some parts of South Kurdistan. It is also claimed that Mesrour ​​Barzani confirmed the purchase of lands to Kadhimi during his visit to Hewler.
