Today marks the 29th anniversary of the massacre of over 5,000 innocent civilians in Halabja, with another 10,000 people injured during the chemical weapons attack. This terrible crime was part of Saddam Hussein’s Anfal Campaign, in which tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis and Iraqi Kurds were murdered. On this solemn day, we honor the memories of the husbands, wives, sons, daughters, brothers and sisters who perished in Halabja and throughout the Anfal, as we continue our joint efforts to defeat Daesh and to prevent future atrocities. In addition Turkey’s pro-Kurdish Democratic Peoples Party (HDP) renews call on the country’s parliament to recognize the 1988 gasattack on Iraqi Kurdish city of Halabja as an act of genocide.

Saudi Foreign Minister in landmark visit to Iraq

BreakingNews @en di

On Saturday Saudi Foreign Minister al-Jubeir was in Bagdad for talks with his Iraqi counterpart Al-Jaafari. This was the first visit of this kind in years, as a government official said it was the first visit of a Saudi Foreign Minister since 2003 and for that reason its importance is so deep and marks a key step in efforts to mend frosty bilateral relations. This visit is a product of the Iraqi Foreign Minister’s efforts to improved stained ties with other countries such as Saudi Arabia, which restablished diplomatic relations with Iraq in 2016 when Al-Sabhan became the first saudi ambassador to Iraq in a quarter century after relations were cut-off after Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait.
