     In video and text; Mr. Pira gives a speech in Geneva

 Saadi Ahmed Pira, Member of PUK Political Bureau and Chief of General relations office, in Erbil, attended Council - Socialist International organization in Geneva as a representative of Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) and gave a speech in the conference.

Below is the full text of his speech;

Mr. President, Mr. Secretary-General, Excellences, Ladies and Gentlemen,
We are aware that the financial condition to run this organization is very essential because this organization supports the rights of all ethnicities. 

We in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq have been running huge financial crises. We have received roughly 2.7 million refugees ever since the Islamic State (IS) militants entered Iraq, and we have been providing them with the necessities of life.

Despite having all those difficulties, we never cut off our relations with our neighbors.
I think we, the Socialist organization members, should let others from Kurdistan of Iran as well as Plantain and Afghanistan become members of this organization because they are the symbol of democratization and liberation.

I urge you all to open the door for the left and democratic parties in the world to become members of this organization to eradicate violence and impose democracy. 

By Rizgar H. Qasim
