    [size=52]An American commission calls for the implementation of the Sinjar Agreement, in consultation with the Yazidis[/size]

    [size=45]Translated by: Hamed Ahmed[/size]
    [size=45]An American report spoke of the lack of real will of the Iraqi government to address the challenges facing these minorities, stressing that the United States, as a strategic partner, also has a role to play in urging Baghdad to intensify and accelerate its efforts to improve religious freedoms for all Iraqis, starting with the full implementation of the Sinjar Agreement. In consultation with the Yezidis.[/size]
    [size=45]A recent report issued by the United States Commission for Freedom of Religion in the World, translated by (Al-Mada), dealt with “the issue of the political crisis that Iraq went through and its impact on the country’s religious minorities, including Christians, Yazidis, Sabians, and Kakais.”[/size]
    [size=45]The report added, "Iraq's political crisis has greatly complicated the conditions of religious minority groups and undermined the Iraqi government's steps in improving the conditions of religious freedoms for religious minority sects across the country, including Yazidis, Christians and other religious minorities."[/size]
    [size=45]He pointed out that "the chronic political blockage that the country went through or during, the government showed its lack of real will to address the important and existing challenges facing religious minorities, and an example of this is the absence of any actual movement to support the Yazidi survivors."[/size]
    [size=45]The report emphasized, "Some of the activists and notables of religious minorities expressed cautious optimism about the formation of the new government in late 2022 and directed their future support towards the new Prime Minister, Muhammad Shia'a al-Sudani."[/size]
    [size=45]And he stated, "The United States, as a strategic partner, also has a role to play in encouraging Iraq to expedite its efforts to improve religious freedoms for all sects of religious minorities, especially the full implementation of the Sinjar Agreement that pertains to the Yazidis and to take their opinion in decision-making."[/size]
    [size=45]The report notes that "the Iraqi Parliament passed in March 2021, almost seven years after the campaign of genocide of the Yazidis at the hands of the terrorist organization ISIS, the Yazidi Survivors Law."[/size]
    [size=45]And he goes on to say, “This law has received global attention as it is the first law to provide compensation and support for the victims of war and sexual slavery in Iraq, which includes the surviving victims of Yazidis, Christians, Turkmen, Shabak and other sects.”[/size]
    [size=45]The report continues, “The law resulted in the formation of a general directorate for survivors’ affairs under the supervision of the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs to facilitate the implementation and implementation of the law.”[/size]
    [size=45]He stated, "The Directorate of Survivors' Affairs signed in October 2022 a cooperation and coordination agreement with the International Organization for Migration of the United Nations for the purpose of providing more assistance in implementing the Survivors' Law."[/size]
    [size=45]The report stresses that “the International Organization for Migration, at the time of signing the agreement, indicated in a comment to it by saying: Many survivors are still in a state of chronic displacement, and those who have returned are not in a significantly better condition.”[/size]
    [size=45]And he quotes, “The United Nations Migration Agency, that until 2022 there are still more than 3,000 Yazidis, including many kidnapped women, missing.”[/size]
    [size=45]The report stated that "more than 200,000 people are still displaced, most of whom live in conditions of extreme poverty in camps for the displaced and other unofficial sites."[/size]
    [size=45]And while he mentioned, “The Council of Ministers had agreed to allocate part of the 2022 financial budget to the Directorate of Survivors’ Affairs to implement the law legislating compensation,” he added, however, that “the political blockage that lasted for nearly a year in Baghdad prevented the funds from being distributed to be distributed to those who deserve them.”[/size]
    [size=45]The report went on to say that “a section of civil society organizations expressed their concern that the government’s inability to properly implement the Survivors’ Law not only deprived those who deserve financial support, but also prevented other survivors from submitting compensation requests.”[/size]
    [size=45]The report talked about "the impact of the political crisis that the federal government went through also on finding solutions to implement other initiatives that address the needs of a wider segment of the Yazidis and solve their displacement crisis."[/size]
    [size=45]He warned, "The implementation of the Sinjar Agreement, which the United Nations helped in 2020 to reach its approval between the central government of Baghdad and the Kurdistan Regional Government, has faltered, which paves the way for a stable situation in Sinjar that encourages the return of the displaced to it."[/size]
    [size=45]And the report added, “The terms of the agreement, which include the appointment of an independent municipal official, the evacuation of the Sinjar region from all factions and armed groups present in it, and the formation of a local security force of Yazidis from members of the Sinjar Resistance Unit, are still not implemented yet, due to the political crisis in Baghdad.”[/size]
    [size=45]And the report went on, “The United States Commission on Freedom of Religions in the World has urged the US government to encourage the Iraqi government and the Kurdistan Regional Government to implement this agreement in a comprehensive manner, in consultation with the notables of the Yazidi community.”[/size]
    [size=45]It is noteworthy that Prime Minister Muhammad Shia al-Sudani said yesterday in an official statement that “the government has included in its ministerial program the care and protection of the rights of all components, including the Iraqi Yazidi component, which was subjected to the most heinous crime against humanity committed against them by the terrorist gangs of ISIS.”[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Sudani added, "Iraq is characterized by the diversity of its sects and components, and this diversity gives it strength, increases its prosperity, and enhances its social cohesion."[/size]
    [size=45]He stressed that “the rights of the components are constitutionally protected, and that the government is working to consolidate them in work programs and service projects that serve the services of the components, on the basis of citizenship and justice.”[/size]
