The Council of Revolution Leadership in Kurdistan A Study in Political Relationships (1964-1966)
AbstractThe Kurdish revolution witnessed a crucial development in 1964 which represents the forming of the council of revolution leadership in Kurdistan for organizing the lines of Kurdish revolution. This was one of the council's missions to organize the diplomatic representation of Kurdish revolution. The representatives of Kurdish revolution started achieving missions as soon as the establishing sessions of the council ended. Esmat Sherif Wanli, the revolution's representative in Europe, had an important role during this stage. Although he didn’t completely achieve his goals, but his visit to Israel and U.S. was important. The council's chairman and revolution's leader paid attention to the continuing contact with the outside world in this stage. He sent messages to the United nations, British prime minister, Harold Wilson, and other senior officials so that they would be aware of political developments in Kurdistan. Though the bigger countries prevented from giving support to the Kurdish revolution to keep their interests, but the council's outside activities succeeded by proving the strength of the Kurdish revolution during this stage. The Kurdish representatives succeeded to move the pictures of Kurds and Kurdistan to the outside world.
