According to the KDP official website Barzani, in a speech at the event, said that he was “pleased to attend the programme and that the Palestinian people have been fighting for their rights and their goals for the past 50 years. Both our people and Palestinians don't just have mutual borders. Kurds and Palestinians are joined because of their joint struggle and mutal cases”.
Barzani also said that, “I hope that one day the Palestinian government will be formed and that this will be the pretext for them to live on their own land and be at peace with their neighbours. I am certain that this will eventuate. We are happy to see our Palestinian brothers and we ask them to forgive us if they see anything that is deficient on our part. The situation of Kurdistan and their difficult situation is something we are following closely”.
