WELCOME TO KURDISTAN

Who are the Kurds?

Kurdistan means the land of the Kurds, which is the geographical region in which the Kurds reside in the Middle East. The region is divided into four countries: Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria. In addition to the presence of the Kurds in Lebanon, Armenia and Georgia, it is difficult to define the geographical region of Kurdistan because the aforementioned countries did not recognize this entity. Kurdistan was divided among the four countries (Turkey, Iran, Iraq, and Syria) forcibly in the Lausanne Agreement concluded between the victorious countries in the First World War.
