YEREVAN. – The role of the Kurdish factor in the Middle East will increase.
Armenia’s Noravank Scientific Educational Foundation Executive Director, political scientist Gagik Harutyunyan, said the aforementioned at a press conference on Wednesday.
In his words, greater attention used to be paid to religious factor in the region, but now, the ethnic factor is in the foreground.
“Even the Iranian authorities consider that the protest actions that took place in the country were partly provoked by the Kurdish factor,” Harutyunyan explained.
He added that Turkey also has started building a wall along its border with Iran, where there is a large Kurdish population and where the Kurdish factor is more tangible.
