UN Envoy welcomes the first International Conference on the Impact of Terrorism on Human Rights in Iraq

Baghdad, 10 October 2013 – The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq, Mr. Nickolay Mladenov, welcomes the Government of Iraq’s initiative in organizing the first International Conference on the Impact of Terrorism and Human Rights in Iraq, which took place in Baghdad from 9-10 October.

 

As Iraq continues to suffer from acts of terrorism that indiscriminately kill and injure Iraqi civilians, the UN Envoy said: “I call on the international community to continue its efforts to build the capacity of the judiciary in Iraq and strengthen the rule of law as key cornerstones for the protection and promotion of human rights.” “Fighting terrorism demands a holistic approach that also considers addressing its root causes, and all friends of Iraq need to support the political, religious, and civil leaders of the country at this crucial time”, Mr. Mladenov added.
