“I declare openly that Iraq’s central government doesn’t accept the presence of foreign or armed groups inside its soil and that after the full establishment of security and stability no foreign or armed group is allowed to stay in Iraq and continue opposition to neighboring countries,” Iraqi president Jalal Talabani said in an interview with Hurriet newspaper’s correspondent “Yalchin Dogan”.
“I declare openly that Iraq’s central government doesn’t accept the presence of foreign or armed groups inside its soil and that after the full establishment of security and stability no foreign or armed group is allowed to stay in Iraq and continue opposition to neighboring countries,” Iraqi president Jalal Talabani said in an interview with Hurriet newspaper’s correspondent “Yalchin Dogan”. In this interview, Talabani expressed his ideas on the presence of PKK and other terrorist groups in Iraq and in response to this question that “you are aware of the presence of PKK forces in northern Iraq and you oppose them, but why don’t you stop their activities? And why don’t you push them out of your borders?” he replied: “for the time being we can’t because we are engaged in stopping terrorist operations in Iraqi cities. Then, it would be their turn.” “You mean the current situation would continue?” Hurriet’s correspondent asked. Talabani answered: “We review the ways for fighting these groups and I declare frankly that Iraqi central government accepts no foreign or armed group in Iraq and after the establishment of stability, no foreign or armed group would be allowed to stay in Iraq and continue to oppose neighboring countries. This is exactly the same stance of PUK and KDP.”
