His excellency the President of USA
His excellency the
Secretary General of UN Mr. Kofi Annan
The excellencies members of Security Council
|Defence Plan to Stop Deportation and Genocide of Kurdish Nation in South Kurdistan(Middle/North/North West of Iraq)||And an Energy Project Proposal|
UN tried to apply seriously its Resolution No. 688 ??? !!!
their visit to Kurdistan-South(North Iraq) late 2000,2002, Mr.Benon Sivan and
his mission, saw, realised and recognised, some of the deported families and
people in Bardeqaraman refugie camp 50 Km to the East of Kurdish city
Kirkuk and in many other places, I think that its an impotant part of his
mission duties to report these figures and facts to his
UN General Security Mr. Kofi Anan, to the members of Security Council and
all UN members.
quite clear for every observers that under the present circumstances in Iraq,
it's the top most obligations of UN and its Organisations to act seriosly,
effectivly and rapidly to stop the progress of deportations and to assist the
deported families in refugie camps to survive their routine life and to
guarantee to them safety, food, health and education parallel with preparing an
Anti-Deportation Plan to return these people safely to their mother lands as per
1957 statistics and the UN 688/1991 Resolution.
to implement such necessary plan,
UN and it's numerous organisations have no legal excuses, because according to
UN Resolutions 687, 688, 986 and other extentions, the UN authorities have no
budget problem which was and is the always's problem of UN activities.
We and UN knows that there are a huge surplus of money from selling Iraqi
oil( including the selling of about 1.5 Million barrel daily from Kurdistan oil
which is produced under Ba'ath regression from Kirkuk oilfields, valued
approx. 35-45 millions US dollars daily).
must be, the top priority of UN programms to spend a good amount of these huge
resourses to implement the above UN Resolutions especially to start spending on
Plans to stop repression of Kurdish
and Iraqi people as per Res.688/1991.
understand that any further delay in searching for such
Anti-Deportation/Repression Plans and their implementations will cost the
deported/repressed people their lifes, their properties and their future, and
this will be at first place the responsibilty of
Iraqi-Ba'ath goveronment, which is necessary to be put on an Internationl
trial for its crimes against humanity, and it's
at second place the responsibilty of UN organisations to respond urgently
to the calls of thousands of deported/repressed
families, tens of NGOs active in
Kurdistan, international organisations, personalities and especially from both
De’Facto active regional goveronments in Sulaimanyah and Erbil.
absence of an applicable plan(s), which were to be/must be systematically
followed by the kurdistan people against the systematic Ethnic-Cleansing plans
and operations continued since 1920s, that is to say after the forming of
Iraqi goveronment as a result of I
World War led to neglecting the Will and Request of
Kurdish Nation(30 Millions) to form its democratic goveronment on their
the absence of such Anti- Ethnic Cleansing/Repression plans locally and
internationally led to more severer operations since 1963, and afterwards since
1968 i.e. the Coup of present
Nationalist Ba'ath Party, and reached its Peaks in 1988 in so called
Anfal 1, 2, 3, ...8 oprations by demolishing more than 4500 villages and anfalling(taking
people under force, killing them, disappearing them, using them for testing the
chemical and biological weapons) all the properties, as well as
disappearing of 182000 people since
that dates until now, in addition planting more than 15 million mines in
Kurdistan region by Iraqi army.
the level of Genocide Operations of Kurdish Nation, implemented by
Saddam-Ba'ath regime took another
dangerous level and the cruillity situation happened when Halabja towen in
Kurdistan was bombed with chemical weapons at about 11.00 O’clock of 16th.March
1988, which killed more than 5000 people and more than 10,000
severely wounded from childern, women, old men and other civilians. Until
today, most of them are suffering from multiple diseases, face and body
deformations and very bad psychological, health and bad economical conditions,
even the newly born children are suffering from the durable damaging effects of
those hazardous weapons on their parents. I see here the UN complete negligence
to this high priority issue is shameful, look on your organisation www.opcw.org
and see the negligence level, because you can not find an article about
bombarding the Halabja town-kurdistan-Iraq, do you wait Saddam’s approval to
publish an article about this issue???
am approaching UN and its organisations to implement a necessary plan to help
these victims as well as it’s the UN duty to care about restoring the
environment-Nature to a normal condition. I press that according to UN
regulations especially those which came out from the Durban-South Africa
Congress, last summer 2002, the UN organisations are responsible to put a
complete plan including all HSE
this issue and to implement it ASAP, especially the Kurdistan local Government
and the elected Kurdistan National Assembly now and since 04.10.2002 is unified
and can play a very positive role in preparing and implementing such durable
proposed plan. I am ready personally and as a volunteer to work in such project,
and I am waiting your action please.
tragedies which are happening to Kurdish nation brings no any serious attention
of UN and International community, and the Kurdish Case as a whole got no any
political value as if Kurds were boren to be used for political distribution,
geopolitical optimisation of forces and interests, experiments and testing of
chemical, biologecal and most probably nuclear
bombs in near future by the goveronments which are dividing the great
behaviour of UN and the Global community so careless toward such big nation and
neglecting its existence reached to this terrible level of complete negligence
to look in it as a political issue, the UN
and the Security Council will be responsible for what may happen to Kurdish
nation in future, and are responsible from a real implementation of afore
mentioned UN Resolutions concerning stopping the repression and deportation of
Kurds whithin Kurdistan and reconstruction of Kurdistan as well as providing
necessary political support and protection
to Kurdistan people by recognising present
local federal government which was elected in 19.05.1992 under the UN
observation and many other NGOs, especially we see now the possibility of a new
war between international community and the Iraqi Ba’ath
see that its my duty to ask UN to recognise Kurdistan Federal Government and
to allocate at least a chair in UN as an Observer, if you think that a
30-40 million Kurd Nation has no write to be a permanent constructive member
under the excuse that we, Kurds have no recognised border and flag, etc….
feel as one the Kurd’s energy expert that since long ago its the United
Nations obligation to treat the Kurdish problem as one of the most ignited
problem in Middle East, I consider that the UN and its Organisations are
responsible from not only what is/are of governments interest as well as from
the Nations interests, if it’s not so, so some corrections are to be made to
the UN name and to be replaced by „ The United Governments(UG)“, in such
case may be we have no right to blame the UG because it will act to keep the
interests of Member Governments away from the nations as its doing now, may be
you blame me that I am tough here, but I hope that you will put your self in my
place and for some short instances to feel that you were born in Kirkuk, and
growen there and studied Petroleum Engineering and tried for 32 years to work in
the oil company in your city – Kirkuk – but never you are allowed because
you are from the Kurdish nationality, in contrast deporting you and your familly
to middle and south of Iraq, then working in oilfields in Iraqi desert against
your wish, in addition putting your brothers and sisters in Saddam’s numerous
jails, and working in Sahara
oilfields from 1970 to 1996 then seeking asylum in Europe,
please what will be your feelling and response.
1991, UN Organisations are behaving doubtfully, not
recognising the south Kurdistan(North Iraq) parliamant election and its
Federal Government, regardless that these elected Kurdish young authorities were
inherited a demolished region not including the most important oil city Kirkuk
and its surrounding, to be able with oil sell revenues to reconstruct the
distroyed kurdistan and to build productive civil projects to guaranttee enough
work-places for the people in the region.
the other hand UN and its Organisations continuous
failures are quite clear in several occasions to provide the promissed safety
haven to the people, to the local political parties, public organisations, as
well as UN’s units and NGOs in
the region which were/are bearing the responsibilities of more than a normal
government, and much difficult in such situation in which the Kurdistan
region(North Irak) is subject not only to a double but a quadraple embargo from
Iraqi Ba’ath regim and the UN sunction unit, as if it was the Kurds who
invaded and occupied Kuwait.
shameful that the cruility of UN against Kurdistan(North Iraq) is at least
UN embargo on kurdish region, while the Kurds them selves are the victims
of Saddam Regime, likewise the Kuwait, and since 1968, and the continued
deportation of Kurds and continued Saddam embargo on Kurdistan are enough facts
to push UN to release its embargo on this poor region, there is no sence that
the victim must pay on behalfe of the Iraqi regime, because of UN weakness
toward the criminal regime and it’s supporters such as Russia.
UN doubtful behaviour in Kurdistan in fact represents a sever political
embargo on Kurdish case, no insurance of protecting the region from the repeated
invasions of Iraki, Turkish and Iranian armies and their secrete intelligences,
left the people with political uncertinity since more than 12 years, it is the
time for the UN to plan and act for a real solution to this part of Kurdistan
likewise the East-Taimoor case, as well as to find a democratic
federalism regime to whole Iraq issue, and to be closely watched
then-after, such partial solution to Kurdish case, may help temporary on
achieving some sort of stabilisation in Iraq, but not in Turkey, Iran and Syria
where 80% of Kurdish nation is suffering from an obvious repression and
dictatorship of the mono-nation-governments which are getting the support from
the major world leading powers because of national interests.
A fair solution for the Kurdish case is to move the international
and UN according to specified regulations of human and nation rights to
establish or to re-establish the Democratic
Republic of Kurdistan of 1946.
Kindly accept my appeal to let and order your
respective authorities and bodies to hear my appeal among which to
carryout a Referendum In Iraqi Kurdistan, because a remedy to
Kurd's case is to give the people themselves a real say in
their own future.
believe that this should be done by means of a legally recognised body of a
referendum supervised by the UN, and
international-NGOs as has occurred before
in similar and less complex cases in Yugoslavia and East Timor.
UN carelessness to encouraging and reinforcing the local elected
authorities is like an other embargo, as if UN is waiting Saddam’s order to
behave with humanitarian necessary matters.
UN failure to build a very necessary 400 beds hospital in Sulaimany City is an
example about what I am mentioning as hot
issues which are on waiting list in front of UN slow and tired
committees. An other example is the UN-authorities drastic failure to
provide beneficial support
to the universities in Duhok, Hawler-Erbil and in Sulaimany. We know that 95% of
their minimised needs given to UN each year were neglected, without giving a
responsible and logic answer to them. The repeated meeting between local
administration with UN organisation in Kurdistan and numerous memorandums
sent to UN high authorities,
represent the constructive tools,
used to ask UN to fulfil its mandate.
UN is careless(purposely) to built any productive
civil projects and factories in the region to provide enough work
places necessary for the life of 5
million people in the region, regardless of huge resources which was never been
available to UN, UNDP, like now from the OIL sells as per Oil for Food Program.
Here our conclusions from such UN behaviour are either UN is of need again to Saddam’s approval to build
some productive projects, or UN it self has no intention in this aspect,
neglecting the real demand of the people beside the other above needs, as a
result of this directly
pushing people to leave the region toward Europe seeking
job chances their, during which hundreds of people were died in
Mediterranean sea or in closed
transport containers, in addition to creating a lot of problems to European
countries. I am asking, tell me who is/are responsible from such miserable and
hazardous situations, who will compensate for the lost of life of hundreds of
people who were died in Mediterranean sea
or in closed transport containers???. From who/where comes the embargo, not to
build any productive civilian projects ???.
is/are standing behind: selling the oil produced from Kirkuk and other Kurdistan
oilfields and accumulating the income in Western Banks, preventing the assigning
of required budget for the development projects in area from where the oil were
produced and sold.
Kurdistan people in this way is not fair and
asking you to be changed, and the Kurdish nation’s dignity to be restored by
applying the international justice and human rights.
obvious that in the absence of political certinity as well as the very bad
economic sitiuation in whole Kurdistan that everyone is trying to leave
Kurdistan seeking political certinity and a job from which he/she could live as
any human on our Earth. The arrival of about 1000 Kurds to France shores during
Febrauary 2001 is a live example to our above facts a figures and still in 2002
many ships arrived Italy, Greece and France shores.
feel that this phenomina is to be taken seriously by UN organisations and to
take solutions suggested since long
ago from the government of Kurdistan and from many NGOs
which will help to solve these continued migrations from its sources. If
I’m asked,I will be ready to assist and will be ever ready to co-operate with
UN authorities in this aspect.
honestly here expressing my serious concerns, as its an integral part of my
humanitarian, political and technical duties
toward my people in Kurdistan to participate in any efforts helping the UN
organisations and the local Kurdistan Government to built/construct civil
productive projects in the area benefiting from the Oil-for-Food-Programme.
to my long experience in oil industry and as the founder of first oil
project in Taqtaq in Iraqi Kurdistan 1992-1996(as reference to these
facts please refer to Mr. Staford Clary the UN Field Officer in Erbil 1993-1995,
and Andrew Hunter at Petroleum Data Base Service, N.Y.), at the absence of any
UN and Iraqi plans to develop any oilfields in the region within the 5 years
Iraqi Plans i.e. until 2006( see E & P issue August 2002 , page
means that this Safety Haven –liberated region ( about 50,000 sq. Km ) with
its 5 million people will stay without any real energy projects, neglecting the
corresponding demands and
regardless the prences of 19 discovered oil and gas fields in the regions.
is the UNDPs responsibility to assist the local authorities to exploit the local
resources and to provide the necessary budget from the above programme to
develop the most suitable Oil/Gas fields to guarantee the adiquate oil and gas
products for the local uses and for re-construction of the destroyed villiges
and to re-build the infrastructures and to have enough resources to establish
new civil services and productive projects which
help the staibilty and peace in the region and to open necessary job
chances for people.
this concern, I am as an Iraqi-Kurd oil expert, prepared
a Master Plan of a Composite Energy Project
proposal( Oil/Gas Fields Development + Electric Power Generation Plants) with corresponding
Infrastructures and hope that the idea will win your kind attention,
and ask your approval to give me the necessary chances to meet and
to discuss the draft of this master plan with your authorities especially
with your UNDP units, after which you + the local de’facto government in
Kurdistan can decide to implement the plan fully or partially.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
you in anticipation
