\"Preemptive and aggressive actions\" A New Approach of Iran\'s Government to Encounter Kurdish Parties

Kurdpa Agency: The secretary of the National Security Council of Iran, in a meeting with the Revolutionary Guards commanders in Urmia, announced \"preemptive and aggressive measures\" to confront the activities of the Kurdish parties.

On Wednesday, March 11th , Ali Shamkhani, secretary of the National Security Council of the Iranian government, at the meeting with the Revolutionary Guards commanders in Urmia, investigate the status of the borders of Kurdistan.

At this meeting, Khakpour, the commander of the IRGC and other commanders of the IRGC reported on the status of the borders of Kurdistan.

The secretary of the National Security Council of Iran\'s government stated at this meeting: \"Over the past two years, counter-revolutionary groups have been supported by some regional and transregional countries. they are struggling to insecure the northwestern borders of the country with vigilance and the intensity of the actions of the armed forces and the security forces failed. \"

At the meeting, he stated, \"We are closely monitoring the creation and development of military bases from transregional countries near our borders.\"

Shamkhani, while threatening the Kurdish parties, added: \"Any attempt to insecure the borders of Iran by any group or country will be accompanied by intense and aggressive actions.\"

Dr. Mohammad Hosseinzadeh, researcher and political analyst in a brief conversation with the Kurdpa Agency, in answer to the question of who is the subject of Shamkhani\'s threatening, said:\" Shamkhani clearly mentioned two threats in his remarks. First, the establishment of foreign military bases in the region, and the second, the threat of some groups. In relation to the first threat, he did not named any specific country, he mentioned the term \"transregional countries\", which has generally been referred to the United States in the literature of political and military officials of Iran. In connection with the second threat, he pointed out to some groups over the past two years who insecure the borders, in my opinion which I consider to be referring to the Kurdish parties and, in particular, the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan( PDKI), and the presence of the party\'s Peshmerge in the form of legitimate politics of Rasan at the border points. The Islamic regime, which is worried about the strategic policy of PDKI in linking of the struggling between Peshmerge and people inside of Iran and the effectiveness and success of such a policy. he has already been talked about with such literature with an unsuccessful attempt to show this movement by some regional or transregional countries. Therefore, by analyzing and comparing Shamkhani\'s words with previous statements by other regime\'s officials who have expressed in recent years, it can be considered a threat from the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan.\"

In response to the question of what these preemptive and aggressive actions would be, the political analyst added: In general, the policy of the Iranian regime, with regard to the Kurds, whether the people or their parties, they have an aggressive approach, and in this regard, this is not a new policy.But the use of the term preemptive action is entirely new, and I think it\'s the first time that they are referring to such a policy. Of course, about three months ago, on January, Jafari, commander of the Sepah and Khakpour, commander of the IRGC, had opened the regime\'s invasive approach during the Qeshm training maneuver, they had uncovered the regime\'s aggressive approach, but their words reflected a kind of preventive strategy that, in strategic literature, meant taking action against a rival who poses a possible threat at a time. But the preemptive action that Shamkhani has spoken about is an action against a rival who has created a certain threat, and the time to respond is limited. Therefore, it is imperative that the Kurdish parties in any case take this threat seriously because it is expressed by the highest military officials and the announcement of such a policy is quite meaningful that the threat is certain and the time to respond to it, is limited.

I have already said that Kurds have to prepare themselves in three ways: diplomacy, legal actions and readiness for asymmetric accountability to face such policies that are operationalizing aggressive intentions.
