Former President of the Kurdistan Region Masoud Barzani has affirmed that the Region would continue to be a center of coexistence in the Middle East, welcoming to all ethnic and religious groups, while marking the International Day for Tolerance.

In a Friday statement, Barzani, leader of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), affirmed that tolerance, coexistence, and the acceptance of one another are some of the main principles of democracy and a measure of development and progress.

“The main factor of the Kurdistan Region’s success and development is the sense of coexistence and tolerance that exists here, which has given beautiful and civilized characteristics to the Kurdistan Region,” Barzani said.

Barzani also asserted that all the religions advocate the strengthening and deepening of coexistence and tolerance.

Since the Islamic State’s mid-2014 emergence and targeting of ethnic and religious groups, Kurdistan has provided shelter for millions of displaced persons.
