Shafaq News/ The representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations in Iraq, Jenin Hennis-Plasschaert, said on Tuesday that the time has come for all Iraqi parties to sit at the dialogue table.
“After today’s session in the UN Security Council, there is only one conclusion: it is time for all parties to sit down at the dialogue table, collectively commit to tangible solutions and move the country back from the brink,” Plasschaert said in a tweet seen by Shafak News.
Earlier today, Tuesday, Blaskharat briefed the UN Security Council on the situation in Iraq and the work of the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI), in which she stressed that differences prevail over the language of dialogue in the country, noting that the southern governorates are witnessing armed skirmishes and the political class is not able to resolve the crisis.
“The disappointment of the people has reached sky-high. Many Iraqis have lost faith in the ability of Iraq’s political class to work for the benefit of the country and its people. Continuing failure to address this distrust will only exacerbate Iraq’s problems,” said Blackshart.
She pointed out that “the political system and the system of governance in Iraq ignore the needs of the Iraqi people. The rampant corruption represents a major root cause of dysfunction in Iraq. No leader can claim that he is protected from it. Keeping the system “as is” will rebound with negative results.”
