The Êzidi Identity and Cause Organization (ÊICO) thanked the German Minister of Foreign Affairs, Annalena Baerbock, for visiting Shingal town and for her country's concern in the Yazidi problem in a letter.

In light of her travel to the Republic of Iraq, ÊICO expressed appreciation to the German Minister on behalf of the Yazidi community for taking Yazidis into account during her meetings with officials and her statements to the media in Baghdad and Erbil.

"Through your visits, recommendations, and the visits of your delegations and diplomatic representations in Iraq and the Kurdistan region, the Federal Republic of Germany has demonstrated its humanitarian interest in the Yazidis and their just cause. This interest gives us inspiration and hope for life in Iraq and the region and paints a clear picture of your overenthusiastic concern for humanity in general and religious minorities in Iraq and the Kurdistan region in particular," ÊICO said in the statement.

"The Yazidi community wants peace and rejects wars and violence, as we have previously reaffirmed to the German government and the European Union in our messages and meetings," ÊICO added. "However, for the success of peace and coexistence between religions and communities in Iraq, the Kurdistan region, and the surrounding area, we need your support and additional attention for us and all other religious minorities in Iraq and the Middle East."

Furthermore, ÊICO expressed its gratitude to the German government and its diplomatic representatives for their ongoing concern and support for religious minorities in general and the Yazidi religion in particular, as well as its thanks and appreciation for the German minister's interest in the Yazidis and their humanitarian cause.
