The President calls on the French authorities to find out the perpetrators.

Iraqi President Dr. Latif Rashid tweeted today, "We deplore and condemn in the strongest terms the criminal attack that targeted a Kurdish cultural center in Paris, which resulted in the fall of a number of innocent victims."

He added, "We call on the French government to expedite the arrest of the perpetrators and bring them to justice," stressing "the importance of combating racism in France to prevent the recurrence of such unfortunate incidents."

A gunman opened fire at Ahmet Kaya Kurdish Cultural Centre in Paris, killing three people and injuring three others. Many Kurdish activists reside in France and have survived or died in numerous assassination attempts.

In 2013, a gunman shot three Kurdish women activists, including a co-founder of the militant nationalist PKK, in a Kurdish information center in Paris.
