MAM JALAL, IRAQI PRESIDENT
“We remember with pride and gratitude the awesome bravery and sacrifices the band of brothers and sisters made to initiate and reorganize resistance against our oppressors in the aftermath of the disastrous treachery of the 1975 Algiers Agreement. History records those were dark days. The nucleus of Peshmergas who decided, against tremendous odds, to challenge a totalitarian state, which enjoyed support from East and West at the time, deserve forever the thanks of the people of Kurdistan of every generation. They proved to the world that the indomitable spirit of our people for identity and freedom cannot be crushed with impunity”
