The Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Iraq, Jenin Hennes-Blaschaert, has urged the international community to continue its support for Iraq's post-conflict recovery. It welcomed the Government's multilateral diplomatic efforts in the context of regional tensions, and called on Iraq's political actors to work together to address priorities, including limiting all weapons under state control, promoting institution-building and enacting reforms.

This came during a briefing to the UN Security Council on the situation in Iraq.

"The lack of funding for post-conflict stabilization and humanitarian response, with gaps of about $ 300 million and $ 500 million, respectively, is hindering the country's recovery," said Plasskhart, according to a UNAMI statement. Pasnius).

"Despite the return of 4.3 million people to their homes, the pace of return has slowed and the remaining needs are more acute in the health, electricity and water sectors." About 1.6 million displaced people are still waiting hard to return home in safety and dignity. ”

She said that Iraq "has the effects of a very heavy past while the current challenges continue to slow progress."  

"The government needs time to fight the many narrow partisan interests that exist, and it needs time to deliver on promises." Equally necessary, political parties and others need to reach a common understanding by prioritizing the country's interests above all. In the end, it must be clear that the government cannot do it alone - it is a shared responsibility. ”

She pointed out that some of the recent amendments to the law of provincial elections are a "great concern". She added that UNAMI will continue to highlight the importance of universal suffrage and the need for transparency and accountability for electoral institutions and processes, all of which are essential to the inclusion and credibility of these elections.

The Special Representative said that the completion of government formations in Baghdad and Erbil and the improved relations between Baghdad and Erbil pave the way for in-depth discussions on outstanding issues, citing encouraging indications as a result of the goodwill shown by all parties to address and normalize the situation in Kirkuk. It offered UNAMI good offices to move the discussions forward to consensus. On Shingal (Sinjar), she again urged the federal and KRG authorities to work quickly towards resolving their differences for the people of this region.

She welcomed the government's efforts to put all armed groups under state control, stressing that security sector reform is a necessity. "There is no doubt that a policy of zero tolerance for any armed party outside the control of the state is the way forward," she said.

The Special Representative commended the Iraqi leadership for its “unwavering commitment to multilateral diplomacy” in its quest to make Iraq “a meeting place for stability and not a place of proxy conflict” in a risky regional context. “In this sense, we must be far-sighted and recognize that current tensions can simply cause a massive blow to all national and international endeavors to rebuild a stable and prosperous Iraq,” she said. "We should spare no effort to avoid such fate."
