Parliament Speaker Mohamed al-Halbousi stressed the need to benefit from
the expertise and competence of people of the Iraqi minority communities, and
to work on granting them state posts.
This came during a meeting with a delegation of Iraqi minorities in the U.S. including representatives of Yazidis, Christians and Mandaeans.
"Iraq is characterized by the diversity of its original components, and the Iraqi government is keen on [making] Iraq [a place] for all Iraqis of all components," Halbousi said, adding that the parliament will work to legislate laws guaranteeing the rights of minorities.
"We are working seriously and quickly to rehabilitate the areas of the sons of Iraq … close the file of displacement forever, provide them with decent life and getting them away of the political problems," Halbousi added.
