Stating his position, Adil Barvari, the Advisor to the Iraqi Prime Minister said: Ashraf residents’ rights as political refugees must be respected from a humanitarian perspective.
He affirmed the solution proposed by the European Union and said: “This solution is the best solution as it brings an end to their suffering.”
Adil Barvari also said: Considering that Ashraf residents are suffering from many difficulties, I believe it is important to understand their conditions especially from a humanitarian perspective, and as guests of Iraq, and considering that Iraq is a democratic country, the Iraqi government must protect their lives and properties.
On another issue, Barvari said: “Iranian regime’s aggressions have become a daily routine in Kurdistan region in a way that these regions are being shelled by the Iranian regime and the victims are innocent villagers.”
He added: “Iraq’s Foreign and Defense Ministries, and especially the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces that can make decisions in the country, should have intervened in this problem.” He continued: “We are waiting for formation of a committee to investigate these aggressions and to end them.”
