PKK denies any involvement in Sulaimani protests

<p dir="ltr" style="text-align: justify;">A member of the relations committee of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) has denied allegations that the party was involved in setting fire to the of offices the government and political parties during Sulaimani protests this week.

According to Al-Ma'lomeh, Kawe Sheikh Mus said: "The recent demonstrations in Sulaimani province have absolutely nothing to do with the PKK. Rather, it is the popular demonstrations organized by the demonstrators who have suffered from the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP).

"The PKK does not interfere in internal affairs in the Kurdistan region or other Iraqi cities. Rather, our problem is always with the Turkish government. But the KDP and its affiliated media are trying to distort the fact that they have been rejected by the public opinion for cooperating with Turkey and making the Kurdistan Region's economy dependent on Turkey," Sheikh Mousse added, stressing that the KDP "tries to accuse the PKK in this regard. However, none of our elements are present in the demonstration places."

Rabin Salam, a senior member of the KDP, recently accused the PKK at a news conference of setting fire to the KDP offices in Sulaimani and thereby inciting demonstrators.
