The President of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), Bafel Jalal Talabani, congratulated Kurdish journalists on the anniversary of Kurdish journalism and said: "In recent years, some areas of the Kurdistan Region have become a place of suppression where free voices are silenced and imprisoned."

The following is President Bafel's statement:

I would like to wish Kurdish journalists a happy anniversary of Kurdish journalism as well as continued prosperity.

Unquestionably, a free press and freedom of expression are essential components of democracy and serve as an example for the advancement and success of a nation. Unfortunately, some areas of the Kurdistan Region have recently not only not progressed in this area but have also turned into places to silence and imprison free speech. Journalists are falsely accused, and the international community has a negative impression of the region.

We truly believe in free journalism and brave reporters. We have never believed that we are above criticism, and we welcome any effort to point out our errors and direct us in the proper direction. As a result, we will stick to our unwavering principles and support all courageous and free voices.

Bafel Jalal Talabani
President of PUK
