Political analyst Majid Zidan refuted Sunday claims by Iran that Kurdistan Region is implicated in igniting the recent protests in the country.
Zidan said the Iranian accusations are a way of evading finding solutions to the problems it is facing.
If the Iranian government has sought to make reforms, it would have searched for the domestic problems that led to the eruption of protests to find solutions to them, he noted.
The protests in Iran have not been limited to a province adjacent to Kurdistan Region. But they have gripped many Iranian cities, including Tehran. It is illogical that this small-sized region is the main reason behind the eruption of unrest and destabilization of a country its population surpasses that of Iraq, he further stated.
The analyst said political, social, economic domestic reasons forces Iranians to protest against the Mullah regime.
For years, Iran has been interfering in the affairs of other countries, including Iraq and Syria. It also funds Houthis in Yemen and Hezbollah terrorist militia in Lebanon. Knowing that their government spends billions on proxy wars, Iranian have taken to the streets to overthrow the regime, he added.
Earlier, Mohsen Rezaee, the secretary of Expediency Discernment Council of the System, said the unrest that gripped Iran had been planned by the US and the Shah’s supporters in Erbil.
