On behalf of the International Federation of the Iraqi Refugees I welcome everyone here I would like to thank Jeremy Corbin for arranging this important meeting. I am sure you all know Jeremy Corbin very well, but I would like to say that Jeremy is a socialist parliamentarian who has always defended freedom. He stood firmly against the war on Iraq and he has strongly defended the refugees, the Iraqi and Kurdish refugees in particular. We highly appreciate all his stances and efforts. I would like to draw your attention today to two important issues on International Human Rights Day. Unfortunately, Kurdistan Regional Government has not taken any steps to answer or find a solution to the two vital issues of women and refugee rights.
