Through our following up the report of UNAMI to the Security Council on 28 August 2019 in its meeting No. (8606), presented by Ms. Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert the Special Representative of the Secretary General of United Nations, we appreciate her statements about valuing the efforts made by Iraqi security forces through all of the units in their fight against terrorism, memorizing the sacrifices of these forces.

At the same time, we commend her call for the adoption of human rights standards in trials, investigative and judicial hearings.

We also appreciate her interest to support Iraqi woman and her reference to the absence of the Iraqi ministerial cabinet of a female figure despite the almost complete.

At the same time, we are surprised about her non reference to the marginalization of the third component in Iraq, namely, Turkmen in the same cabinet, despite the repeated demands by the representatives of Turkmen in the parliament and various events and meetings with representatives of the United Nations Mission in Iraq.

We would like to remind Ms. Jeanine Plasschaert about Iraq’s international obligations and the recommendations of the International Committee against Discrimination issued on January 11, 2019, Article 26, which called on Iraqi government to the need for equitable representation of all components in Iraq in public positions, bodies and functions.
