US project to establish new province in Nineveh Plateau
8:50 PM ADMIN
Baghdad/ Iraq TradeLink: US media reports said that some of Republican and Democratic MPs expressed intentions to adopt a resolution to support establishing a "safe area for religious minorities in Nineveh Plateau".
The proposal was submitted by Iraq in 2014 to establish a new province that will have the right of self-determination.
US Defence Organization to Defend the Christians managed to press the US Congress and administration to describe Da'ish (ISIS) practices against the Christians as "genocide".
On the other hand, the Iraqi Shabak component supported the establishment of a special province for the minorities, provided it will be annexed to the center, Baghdad.
Secretary General Haneen al-Qado added that "we support any national decision to preserve the stability and unity of the displaced people without Kurdish or other countries' interventions".
"The decision should be made by the federal government", he confirmed.
