In a recent speech, the Pope Benedict XVI declared that Kurds should be given their complete rights unconditionally. The Pope acknowledged that the Kurds have been oppressed peoples for a long period and that they should be granted their rights.
Pope Benedict XVI, in his speech, said “everyone should acknowledge that the Kurds are a nation that lives in the current borders of Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey”. The pope praised the Kurdish people saying that they have a rich culture, but that they are oppressed and should be given their utmost rights.
During his speech, the Pope called for a meeting between the world’s religions to put an end to the oppression against the Kurdish people. Pope Benedict XVI said that a meeting must be arranged immediately to discuss a plan to urge the world to grant Kurds their rights.
