He added that “the agreement ends the power of foreign groups, and paves the way for the reconstruction of the city and the return of its afflicted people completely, in coordination with the Kurdistan Regional Government.”

Talal added, “What others have failed in, this government has succeeded by implanting mutual trust, offering goodwill, and based on a solid political will, towards restoring security, stability and reconstruction to Sinjar, and the return of all of its afflicted people to their homes.”
