Although two years have passed since the signing of the Sinjar (Shangal) normalization agreement between Erbil and Baghdad, no practical steps have been taken to implement the agreement, and Sinjari's representative in the Iraqi parliament has claimed that the Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK) and other armed groups are obstructing the implementation of the agreement.
MP Mahma Khalil said, today, Monday, “The agreement was not implemented, and although the Iraqi government took a decision to implement the agreement, it created obstacles in the way of normalizing the conditions of Sinja? , this is clear. There is a defect in the implementation of the agreement.”
Regarding the parties that obstruct the implementation of the agreement, Mahma Khalil said: “The armed groups, including the PKK, are obstructing the implementation of the agreement.
Subsequently, the Kurdistan Regional Government issued a statement welcoming the agreement.
The agreement includes the expulsion of armed groups from Sinjar, in particular the closure of the headquarters of the PKK and the expulsion of its fighters from the city, the reconstruction of Shingal, and then the appointment of an independent figure in the position of commissioner of the region. Assigning security powers to the local police, and then returning the displaced.
However, although two years have passed since the agreement, it has not yet been implemented, and while the Kurdistan Regional Government has repeatedly declared its full readiness to implement it, the Iraqi government has not taken any step in this regard.
