Erdoğan continues to insult and threaten Barzani

Erdoğan continues with his insults and threats against KDP Leader Masoud Barzani.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan gave a speech at a meeting where he gathered a group of people from Northern Kurdistan he dubbed “opinion leaders”. Erdoğan reacted to KDP Leader Masoud Barzani because of the referendum and said: “You are governing over a state. Even if it is a state within a country, you are governing over a state. Your borders and air fields will be closed now, how are you going to get out? What kind of governance is this? You are done, before you even began.”

“This incident called the referendum is a cause, but it is not a result. The result is what comes after. It doesn’t end here, it’s just beginning,” said Erdoğan and added: “This tactic that the global colonialists have employed with success in everywhere they meddled with is now enacted once more in our region. The cantons of terror attempted in the north of Syria are a part of this plan.”


Erdoğan spoke about the embargo enacted by Turkey, Iran and Iraq against the people of Southern Kurdistan by the excuse of KDP and the referendum and continued his insults: “On one hand they have Iran, to the north they have Turkey, to the south they have the Iraqi administration, to the west they have Syria. What are they going to do? Where are they going to go? All air fields will be closed as well, the flights have already been banned. Borders will soon close. How are they going to go in and out? How can someone who runs a state govern such things so childishly? Barzani couldn’t pay his public workers, he came to us. During my time as the prime minister, we gave him 2 billion dollars in credit. He says, ‘This was my childhood dream’. Just sit still, will you?”

Erdoğan addressed Barzani again and said: “You have the Jew with you, who is advising you like this? You only have Israel behind you. You have the former Foreign Minister of France on your right, on your left there is another Jew, and you are working on tabletop plans with them.”
