At the ceremony Mr. Abdullah Mohtadi:
" Dr. Abdul Rahman Ghassemlou was the prominent and self-devoted leader of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan, his assassination in 1989 by individuals of being agents of the radical Islamic Republic of Iran. Komala and Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan shoulder to shoulder fought against a brutal and totalitarian regime. We had a common goal and destiny, separate from our beliefs. We, both Parties in great form boycotted the Islamic Republic referendum and demanded the rights of the Iranian Kurds and wanted a democratic system in Iran. When Khomeini declared a jihad (holy struggle) and a fatwa (religious edict) against the Iranian Kurds and ordered Iranian Kurdistan attack, arrest, and murders, Dr. Ghassemlou opposite regime, and considered the defended the Kurdish nation the legitimate right. Both Parties agreed negotiated to peace and diplomacy with Tehran. And the other thing we thought about it, was the rights of the Kurdish nation and democracy in Iran, Dr. Ghassemlou created the right to democracy and autonomy for the Iranian Kurds and showed these two issues to the Iranian Kurds. And was more than two decades slogans of the Kurdish nation. Dr. Ghassemlou has always emphasized, the Kurds are capable of waging war against the Islamic Republic, but only with their own power, they cannot eradicate it. And it needs the unification of all the Iranian opposition and Iranian nation. He also always emphasized that the Kurdish nation must be united to achieve their goals. He was a reformist, a futuristic politician who courageous to talk about modernity and change. This was his last fight. Unfortunately, Dr. Ghassemlou is not alive and does not see the changes that he was looking for.
This ceremony leads us to the changes and ideologies of both the Komala Party of Iranian Kurdistan and the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan. Dr. Ghassemlou away his ideology from the ideas of the Soviet left. This action had a significant impact on other parts of Kurdistan, especially Iraq. Komala Party of Iranian Kurdistan rejects the Soviet Union. We are not pro-Soviet. And since 1980 we went away our ideology from the ideas of Maoism. Since 2012, both Parties began to cooperate, and we formulated our common policies. Also In 2018, synchronous other Kurdish Parties, we set up a "Cooperation Center of Kurdistan's Political Parties". It became the symbol of the unity of the Kurdish people. We must unite, and speaking with the international community by one voice.
The Kurdish nation must be an influential force in Iran's democratic change, and in the future policy of Iran, must be effective. We must unite with other Iranian opposition parties for an alternative. The recent changes in Iran have given reasons to the international community to change its policies towards Iran and thought about Iran's after the Islamic Republic also collaborate with Iran's democratic opposition, which the Kurdish parties are a major member.
Thank you. "
