The bloc said in a statement: "It is clear to everyone, that a Kurdish deputy in the Iraqi parliament has been attacked with knives in the past days.
We appreciate the role of the security forces in Sulaymaniyah for their ability to arrest the perpetrators and bring them to justice within a short time, and at the same time, we express our full support for the statement of Lahur Sheikh Jangi, the co-president of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan.
Adding to that; they emphasized that, on this issue, we stand against any interference in the work and affairs of the judiciary and we affirm the rule of law, as well as the need to respect it by the Kurdistan Regional Government first and before the rest of the parties to reduce the commission of crimes.
At the same time, we reject the unprofessional and far-reaching statement of the responsibility of the spokesman for the Kurdistan Regional Government, which expresses the opinion of one party in the Council of Ministers.
