In video: Nadia Murad to Trump: Disputes between Baghdad and Erbil must end

18/7/2019 10:39:00

The Goodwill Ambassador of the Nobel Peace Prize 2018, Yazidist activist Nadia Murad, called on the Iraqi government and the Kurdistan Regional Government to end disputes over Sinjar to enable all communities to return to Sinjar, including Muslims, Christians and others.


She said: "During the second ministerial conference to promote religious freedom in Washington, Mourad called on the two governments to end disputes over Sinjar district so that Yezidis and those living in the judiciary could return to their homes, and local governance issues must be resolved in Sinjar."


She added: "While 80,000 Yazidi have returned to Sinjar, local conflicts make it difficult for them to survive and rebuild." 


She continued: "The conflicts between Baghdad and Erbil must end around Sinjar, otherwise the Yazidis will continue to be victims of their conflict." 


She noted: "The international community should call Baghdad and Erbil to better integrate religious minorities into the security forces. These efforts will enable religious minorities to have a hand in their own security as well as to prevent future genocide efforts."
