Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) MP Yunadim Kanna stressed that “Inviting the United Nations to mediate among the dispute political sides in Iraq came due to the absence of the President Jalal Talabani from the political arena, besides the lack of a neutral figure that enjoys acceptability among all.”
Kanna told Iraqi News (IraqiNews.com) “Talabani played role in preserving the Constitution and taking the initiative to calm down the tensions and resolve crises, but now, there is no figure that enjoys acceptability for all like Talabani.”
“For this reason, we invited the UN to mediate among the dispute sides in Iraq as the country lacks neutral figure. Moreover, it is still under the UN sanctions stated in UN Charter’s Seventh Chapter,” he added.
The UN Secretary General’s Special Representative for Iraq, Martin Kobler, has visited Mosul on last Tuesday to check on the demonstration’s situation there.
