United Nations calls for the implementation of Article 140 of the Iraqi Constitution

Recommended Posts

I guess this article says it is over, don't think UN is fake news. Now the world will watch and hopefully see the new Iraq rise out of the rubble all it's people can rebuild their lives and homes once and for all. I hope now they can put Iran and Turkey in their places in their country. Now they can go after Maliki and etc and make them pay!!  

I pray to God that no terrorist can ever tell someone to fight for us or we will kill your family. Only problem  now is the ISIS gutter rats have jumped country and will spread to all corners of the world.

 

:wave: for now

First the were supposed to allow voting on this by end of 2007. Then it was 6 months later. More recently, April, Abadi met with Kurds and agreed to move forward once ISIS was done in Mosul. Well, guess what?? Tick tock, tick tock. Let's see if they actually follow through on something, ANYTHING, in a timely manner.

United Nations calls for the implementation of Article 140 of the Iraqi Constitution

http://www.rudaw.net/mobile/ar...../100720177

 

Roudao - Erbil

The Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Iraq, Jan Kubic, has extended his sincere congratulations to the people and Government of Iraq on the liberation of the city of Mosul from a sympathetic organization.

"This victory provides an excellent opportunity for Iraq to rise again, strong and united," he said. "Despite a crushing crush in Mosul, the war against terrorism is not over and Iraq has more work to achieve full recovery and lasting peace," he said in a congratulatory message. Adding that "this is a historic victory for Iraq and the world and a resounding defeat for Dahesh and terrorism indicates their end, indicating that the nightmare that has been hanging on the shoulders of the people of Mosul for three years has ended and has finally liberated Mosul." Today, he uttered the so-called "Caliphate" From terrorism, its last breath ".

"Their bankruptcy and moral collapse are clearly revealed in their barbaric destruction of the Nuri Mosque and its distinctive humpback, where they announced in 2014 their false Takfiri project for the so-called Caliphate."

"We share with the Iraqis their joy in this victory, recalling the victims who have fallen and those who have suffered the most from intimidation and salute the continued efforts of the security forces to clear the liberated areas of the remaining pockets of terrorism and possible sleeper cells."

"Victory on the battlefield was the culmination of a series of heroic acts, where Iraqis took the lead in fighting for the liberation of their country and with the concerted support of the world," Kubic said.

"The credit and sacrifices of the Iraqi security forces, the Popular Popular Forces, the Peshmerga, the tribal fighters and the military support of the international coalition were the key to achieving this victory," Kubic said, adding that the price was too high for Iraq, Together with the destruction of a mosque in Mosul, the Iraqi people sent a resounding message that they see their future together. "

The UN representative praised all Iraqi security forces and Prime Minister Dr. Haider al-Abadi in particular for their efforts to save the lives of civilians. "Their efforts have been exceptional, although the liberation of Mosul is a devastating blow to the Palestinian people. Still controls some parts of Iraq, and can still launch attacks and threaten stability.

"They have committed massacres against defenseless men, women and children, used them as human shields, enslaved thousands of women and girls, and imposed harsh punishments on anyone who violates their extremist views or inhuman and brutal rule, causing no suffering," Kubic said. "They have waged a war of annihilation against the Iraqi people and their heritage wherever they have set foot, destroying both mosques and churches, completely ignoring the sanctity of religious beliefs, which must be treated as war crimes and crimes against humanity."

In addition to restoring security and the rule of law in liberated areas, the immediate priority is to accelerate the efforts to restore stability to enable millions of civilians who have fled combat zones in Iraq to return voluntarily and safely to The massive humanitarian action must go hand in hand with a strong political process to conduct elections, achieve national and community reconciliation and rebuild social cohesion in order to ensure justice, dignity and peace. Sustainable development for future generations ".

"The protection of civilians and the imposition of the rule of law and order on criminal groups and other armed groups that are prohibited in conflict and post-conflict situations are a top priority," he said, adding that sustainable peace also requires that the principles of justice, accountability, tolerance and respect for human rights be the guiding force for all future actions With particular attention to the most vulnerable groups, such as women, children and minorities, and perpetrators of atrocities should be brought to justice and human rights violators should be held accountable for eradicating the ideology of extremism and extremism from the minds of those affected by this scourge Sustainable peace requires the right of return to all, without any demographic manipulation or recourse to retaliation, punishment or forced evictions. "

"Peace, which the country and its citizens need and deserve, must be based on strong foundations of unity, cooperation, justice, tolerance and coexistence, from community, community and tribal levels to preventing a return to previous periods and risking devastating consequences," Kubic said.

He called on Iraqis to look towards the future with unswerving optimism and engage in meaningful dialogue in a spirit of partnership to resolve differences that impede progress, fight corruption that drains the country's finances, and reform and revitalize the economy to put the country on the road to more jobs and prosperity. He also urged the government in Baghdad and the Kurdistan Regional Government to benefit from the ideal military cooperation in the fight against Daqash, and to start work now to resolve outstanding issues, especially the issue of the referendum on the independence of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq and the implementation of Article 140 of the Constitution with regard to borders and disputed areas , Especially the status of Kirkuk, through dialogue and genuine partnership.

"The United Nations, which stood by Iraq in the darkest circumstances three years ago when it seized an organization calling for large areas of its territory until it reached the gates of Baghdad, will continue to support it in the after-stage with determination and enthusiasm, and will work with the government, central and local authorities,

In a surrealistic world all of this would have been done years ago. In a realistic world it moves slowly and methodically. The methods I see before me right now are definitely moving at lightning speed these days. When I think back to where we were when American troops left Iraqi soil the end of 2011 to where we are today...... What a crazy ride it has been. More importantly, look at all the dust left up in the air from Abadi's fancy footwork over the past 3 years. Maliki is getting buried in the fallout!      :twothumbs:   :D   :rodeo:

Story below - thanx Boozer 

 

UNITED NATIONS, New York – The United Nation’s decision to not “engage” with the Kurdistan referendum on independence is not a stance against the vote, a UN spokesperson confirmed to Rudaw, but is part of their “standing principle” to participate in votes only at the request of national governments.

In June, the UN’s office in Iraq issued a statement declaring it “has no intention to be engaged in any way or form as concerns the referendum.”
 

At the UN’s headquarters on Friday, Rudaw’s Majeed Gly asked Stephane Dujarric, spokesperson for the Secretary General, if this stance meant the UN mission opposed the historic vote. 


“No, they just made it clear that they will not participate in the organization,” Dujarric answered. 

It is the UN’s policy to participate in any vote on requests from national governments only, he explained. 

“As a matter of principle, the UN needs a request from a national government to participate and to help, whether it’s technical and otherwise, in any balloting that takes place. The UN works with national governments and that is how we operate throughout the world. That’s just a standing principle.”

Dujarric stressed that the UN would like to see “dialogue between Erbil and Baghdad” to resolve outstanding issues between them, a position he said the international body has stated “over and over again.”

Kurdish officials had hoped that the UN would assist in monitoring the referendum scheduled for September 25, Fuad Hussein, chief of staff to the Kurdistan presidency, had told Rudaw in June.

So the referendum is not scheduled until SEPTEMBER 25. The way things get done in Iraq, Article 140 won't be implemented until after the referendum and an educated guess is based on the results of the referendum. Just because Mosul is liberated does not mean that ISIS is out of Iraq. They are still along the border between Syria and Iraq, and occupy the town of Hawiji <sp?>. I recall reading once Daesh was out of Iraq then things will be better off. Now this has turned into Mosul? The barbarians are still at the gates.
