chattels: PARIS, France – Former French foreign minister Bernard Kouchner sees bright futures for both the Kurdistan Region of Iraq and for Syrian Kurdistan. In an interview with Rudaw, the 75-year-old veteran politician and founder of the Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) NGO says conditions for greater self-rule for Kurds in these two parts are more likely than in Turkey and Iran.
Kouchner, who has been a close friend of Kurdish leaders over the past four decades, says France should have provided greater help to the Peshmerga. But he cautions that this is a war that the Kurds themselves should fight, since it was they who were attacked by the Islamic State (ISIS) group.
