As part of the efforts to achieve peace and stability between the Yazidi national minority and the Arab tribes of Iraq, a conference was held on 30 March to formulate and sign the so-called "Document of Harmony and Concord", which addressed critical aspects of the issues that require immediate attention.

Through lengthy discussions and refinements involving representatives from the Institute of Peace, the Liberation Society, Yazidi sheikhs, government officials, and Arab tribal representatives, the key requirements of the "harmony document" agreement were reviewed and approved.

The Yazidi Movement for Reform and Progress and the Yazidi Freedom and Democracy Party issued statements rejecting the signing of the "Harmony Document" concluded in Mosul between Yazidi figures and Arab tribal leaders of northern Sinjar.

A statement from the Yazidi Movement for Reform and Progress noted the categorical rejection of the signed document as it was not authorised by the families of the victims.

1. Bringing ISIL perpetrators to justice and imposing fair punishment.

2 The release of all abducted Yazidi women.The Movement expresses its determination not to accept any agreement without bringing the perpetrators of atrocities against the Yazidi people to justice and insists on the need for the following measures.

3. Implementation of the Law on Yazidi Women Survivors of Violence without prejudice.

4. Opening of all mass graves.

5. Compensation to the families of the deceased and granting them all their rights.

6. Reconstruction of all Yazidi territories.

7. Return of displaced persons to their homes and fair compensation according to the damage suffered.

8. Holding a public enquiry into the causes of the Sinjar attack.

The Yazidi Freedom and Democracy Party also issued a statement, emphasising that all agreements that do not include the families of victims and survivors are null and void for the Yazidi people. The party insists that only the families of the victims and survivors have the right to decide on the fate of the Yazidi people and those who defended them.

Thus, both organisations underlined their position on the need to bring the perpetrators to justice and ensure justice for the Yazidi people. Their statements stressed that any agreements without the participation of the families of victims and survivors cannot be recognised as legitimate and will not be accepted by the Yazidi community.
