Excerpt of Qazi Muhammad’s speech on occasion of Newroz celebration in Mahabad

After greeting the historical Kurdish day of Newroz, he [Qazi Muhammad] added:

“These days Turkey, Iran and Iraq are negotiating, they intend to
renew the notorious pact of ” Saadabad” which some of its provisions
were meant to oppose the Kurds. But they should know that such pacts
are not worth more than a piece of paper as it has been so in the past
and they remain so.”

He further pointed out: ” Reza Shah, Mustefa Kemal Ataturk, King
Faisal made agreements in order to oppose the Kurds. Thanks God they
vanished in a short time. Our hope and praying to God is: that those
who make pacts against Kurds are digging their own graves by their own
hands…”

He also welcomed and thanked his Excellency Mela Mustafa the
chieftain of Barazan and praised the roll of Barzan Force and high
ranking officers of National army.”
