US State Department: Washington supports the Yazidi minority and the Sinjar Agreement, which provides minorities and displaced persons with the opportunity to benefit from the Iraqi state.
Jennifer Gavito, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Iraq and Iran, expressed disappointment in some key issues related to security and administration:
"We support the Sinjar Agreement and are working closely with central and regional governments to make progress in this regard.
The United States has provided great support to the Yazidi minority in Iraq for many years, protecting the Yazidis and ensuring their ability to return to their homes has been a top priority for us.
The Yezidi minority has suffered displacement and destruction of territories in the Nineveh Plain, in Kirkuk, in the eastern part of Salah al-Din and northern Diyala, which are areas known as disputed areas between the central governments in Baghdad and the Kurdistan Regional Government.
We continue to aid. We believe that a permanent agreement between the Federal Government of Iraq and the PKK with the participation of local communities is the best way to resolve the situation in the specific case of Sinjar. Frankly, we were disappointed that we still have a long way to go on some key issues, such as security and governance," said Jennifer Gavito, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Iraq and Iran.
It is noteworthy that Jennifer Gavito has held the position of Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Iraq and Iran since August 2020, and before that she held the position of Chief Political Adviser at the US Embassy in London.
The Iraqi army has not reached an agreement with the forces of Asaish Ezidhan and the Sinjar Resistance Units (Al-Yabesh) to manage the security situation in the Sinjar area after clashes between the two sides over the past few days.
On October 9, 2021, Baghdad signed an agreement with the Kurdistan Regional Government on ensuring security in the Sinjar district of Nineveh province by federal security forces in cooperation with the forces of the region and expelling all illegal armed groups outside the Yezidi region.
Regarding minorities in Iraq and displaced persons, US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Iraq and Iran Jennifer Gavito said:
"One of the main areas in which the formation of a government is very important and a priority for us, and it is very necessary for the future of Iraq, so that it is accessible to all minority groups and displaced persons. An opportunity to benefit from a strong Iraqi State, and we consider this future to be truly optimistic.
We can only call in the strongest possible way for the formation of a government that will give priority attention to this issue, as we do," with these words Gavito concluded her conversation about the case of national minorities at a telephone press briefing organized by the US State Department.
