On the anniversary of the Anfal genocide committed by the former Iraqi dictatorship regime against the Kurdish nation, PUK Co-Leader Lahur Talabany issued a statement, asking for the Anfal campaign to be recognized internationally as a crime against humanity.

“On the anniversary of the Anfal genocide committed by the Ba'ath regime against our people, we commemorate the loss of our loved ones who were buried alive in the slaughters of this crime, whose graves have not yet all been exhumed, and the bodies of the victims have not all been returned.” PUK Co-Leader Lahur Talabany wrote in his Facebook account.

He added, “The patience of the families and individuals of Anfal have changed tears to hope and they have changed the genocide of a nation to a stronger identity and a brighter future.”

Moreover, Lahur Talabany asked that “It is the duty of all to work to eliminate the remnants of Anfal,”

“We must put our efforts forth to have the Anfal campaigns be recognized internationally, for the Iraqi government to compensate the families of Anfal, and for the relevant authorities in the Kurdistan Regional Government to provide the most services to their areas.” He highlighted.
