Mansur al-Baiji

Mansur al-Baiji, a lawmaker with State of Law Coalition, on Tuesday the Iraqi parliament rejects the settlement proposal introduced by the United Nations.

He also asserted that any settlement proposal should be initiated by parties within the country.

The lawmaker also added that the coming period will be more delicate than the current one as the people's awareness needs to be raised after obliterating ISIS terrorist.

"Of course settlement is the best option. But it should be enforced away from favoritism," he stated.

"The US proposed settlement paper is rejected by the parliament since there was no coordination with us or with the competent committee within the parliament," the lawmaker explained.
