Ambassador Stephen Hickey has stressed on the importance of implementing the deal between Erbil and Baghdad aimed at normalizing the situation in Sinjar.

UK Envoy Urges Implementation of Erbil-Baghdad Deal on Sinjar In October, 2020, the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and the federal government announced that they had reached an agreement to normalize the situation in Sinjar to restore stability in the region and provide a safe return to the displaced Yezidis.

 

Based on the agreement, all armed groups, including the pro-Iranian militia groups and fighters of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), are expected to withdraw from the Yezidi majority populated region of Sinjar.

"We continue to encourage both governments to work together in harmony to resolve these problems," the UK ambassador said during an interview with Kurdistan 24.

Ambassador Stephen Hickey has stressed on the importance of implementing the deal between Erbil and Baghdad aimed at normalizing the situation in Sinjar. He further noted that it was crucial "for all sides to fulfill their responsibilities and withdraw from the town of Sinjar," adding that "for the existence of proper security and proper services in Sinjar, the armed groups must withdraw for the Iraqi security forces to play their role in and around Sinjar, providing security."

The UK ambassador argued that "the main losers will be the inhabitants of Sinjar, including many thousands of Yezidis (Ezidis) who are still in displacement camps in the Kurdistan Region and elsewhere."
