A political peaceful solution to the Kurdish issue in Eastern Kurdistan-Iran through dialogue and negotiations is the first political choice for PJAK. The goal is to mobilize and unite the Kurds and the Iranian opposition in a wide democratic united front to change the regime in Iran and establish a Democratic Confederacies State of Iran. 

The support of the international democratic system is an essential factor in our struggle to achieve our goals. Our political and diplomatic policies are directed at the local, regional and international levels. Our mission is to seek alliances and to establish good relationships with the democratic powers and groups who are interested in democratisations of Iran, human rights, peace and freedom.

In order to achieve these goals a wide democratic front and cooperation between the Kurdish and the Iranian opposition is required. From the day that PJAK was established and until now, we have sought to build a front and to cooperate with all groups and parties. Up until today, we have put emphasis on this issue and we will keep making an effort in order to achieve our goals and objectives. The Political and Diplomatic Committee of our party has been very active in this respect and has reached many notable results.

The current repression against Kurdish civilians requires a quick and effective international intervention. The killing of Kurds and other ethnic groups has to be  stopped as soon as possible in order to prevent a possible blood bath by the regime.

As possible scenarios to address the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) problem in northern Iraq and in Turkey loom on the horizon, Ankara is becoming an interesting place to watch.

First, Iraqi journalist Rebwar Kerim claimed that Turkey rejected close to 3,800 PKK terrorists who attempted to surrender to the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) in 1992 and sent them back to their hideouts in the mountains of northern Iraq, which the TSK later bombed. The TSK spokesman did not deny the claims. Further, retired generals and Osman Öcalan, brother of the PKK's founder and imprisoned leader, Abdullah Öcalan, also confirmed that the PKK militants were allowed to return to the PKK bases in 1992.
