KRP Is­sues State­ment Re­gard­ing UNSC Res­o­lu­tion 688 of 1991

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dency is­sued a state­ment in which it re­it­er­ated Kur­dis­tan's ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the United Na­tions Se­cu­rity Coun­cil Res­o­lu­tion 688 in 1991 which had then es­tab­lished the "no-fly zone" in an ef­fort to pre­vent the for­mer Iraqi regime from com­mit­ting crimes against its pop­u­la­tion. The state­ment made ref­er­ence to the res­o­lute­ness and brav­ery of the res­o­lu­tion which paved the way for much of the progress that has been wit­nessed in the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion of Iraq since then. The Kur­dis­tan Re­gion of Iraq is now among the fore­front fight- ers against the ter­ror­ists of the is­lamic State, pro­tect­ing its pop­u­la­tion as well as the global in­ter­ests in the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, the state­ments adds.

The state­ment con­cludes by ex­press­ing the grat­i­tude of the peo­ple of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion to the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity for pass­ing the res­o­lu­tion which re­mains, twenty five years af­ter its pass­ing a valu­able in­ter­na­tional de­ci­sion.
