The members of the German Federal Parliament discussed a proposal advocating for the recognition of crimes against Yazidis as genocide


All members of parliament present at the session voted in favor of the proposal. The proposal states that “Parliament acknowledges that the crimes committed against the Yazidi community in Iraq by ISIS in 2014 constitute genocide as defined by the United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide.” The session was also attended by Yazidi Miri Sheikh Hazim Tahsin Beg, Yazidi figures and genocide victims.
On behalf of the Kurdistan United States Government, we respectfully thank you for this decision and respectfully salute your sensitivity.
