Malta needs to defend the Kurds – PD

Partit Demokratiku (PD) stands up in solidarity with the people of the Kurdish territory of Rojava and is asking the Maltese authorities to do the same.

In a press release on Friday, the PD state that Turkey‘s invasion of the Rojava region has only seen France threatening major sanctions. Whilst the USA claim as ceasefire from Friday, the Turkish authorities claim that this is temporary.

In view of all this, PD is asking Malta to ally with France against Turkey by using all the possible diplomatic and political pressure available. This in order to prevent any further bloodshed.

PD stressed that the people of Rojava need their way of life and autonomy to be respected especially after 11,000 lives were sacrificed to defeat ISIS.
