ITF TURKEY REPRESENTATIVE DR. HICRAN KAZANCI CELEBRATING MESSAGE FOR THE 18TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE IRAQI TURKMEN FRONT
We are celebrating the 18th anniversary of the Iraqi Turkmen Front which was founded on the 24th of April 1995 and is the largest organizational structure of the Turkmen.
Since the day of its establishment the Iraqi Turkmen Front has made major progress in defending the rights of the Iraqi Turkmen and eliminated all internal and external threats. Although it was over, the cyclical impact of the Cold War continued into the 1990’s. The Iraqi Turkmen Front has applied rational policies against the developments emerging from the cyclical impact of the Cold War and has been successful in keeping the rights of the Turkmen on both the national as well as international platforms.
The Iraqi Turkmen Front maintained its stand of prioritizing the interests of the Turkmen community and continued on its path also after the new structuring emerging in the region after 2003. Today countries which are within the parenthesis of global forces which are driving regional conflicts centered in Iraq are carrying out a power play in Iraq.
Today attacks and plots against Turkmen, particularly centered on Turkmeneli region, continue in Iraq. These conspiracies are targeting the Iraqi Turkmen Front. However, the Iraqi Turkmen Front which is empowered by the nation is strong enough to overcome these troubles as it has in the past and as it will in the future. With its 18 year history in politics and significant experience, the Iraqi Turkmen Front shall continue to generate strategies for the cyclical protection of the interests of the Turkmen community.
