By Munir Bayouk/ en.abouna.org

An Iraqi Kurdish delegation visited the Catholic Center for Studies and Media (CCSM) in Amman on February 22, 2020. The delegation consisted of Mr. Ghafour Makhmouri, secretary general of the Kurdistan National Democratic Union, and Mr. Romeo Hakkari, head of the Parliamentary National Unity Bloc and head of the Social Affairs and Human Rights Committee.

Upon arrival, the delegation was received by CCSM Director Fr. Dr. Rif’at Bader and CCSM members of staff.

A detailed discussion ensued relevant to the situation in Iraq in general in addition to the situation in Iraqi Kurdistan and the situation of the forcibly displaced Christians living there in particular.

During the meeting, Fr. Dr. Bader gave a briefing on the media activities carried out by the CCSM in terms of holding conferences or participating in them, in addition to its English- and Arabic-language websites. He pointed out that Christianity is a basic component of the Jordanian society as Christianity has been enrooted in Jordan since its inception.

Reviewing the sublime plurality in Jordan, he praised the Hashemite leadership that supports the Jordanian people with all its components as well as attains political and security stability. He also expressed his hope that the Iraqi people would restore security and peace.

For his part, Mr. Makhmouri shed light on the security and political situation in Iraq, while Mr. Hakkari addressed the current situation of the Christians in Iraq following the forcible displacement carried out against a large part of them by ISIS gangs in Mosul and Nineveh Plain.

The guest delegation had earlier met with several Jordanian officials, including Senate Speaker Mr. Faisal Al-Fayez. The two sides spoke about the most important political developments in the region in Iraq and in Iraqi Kurdistan in light of the changes and the turmoil engulfing the region. Mr. Hakkari elaborated, during the meeting with the Jordanian delegation, on the role played by the Assyrian, Chaldean, and Syriac component of the Iraqi society in the political process in Iraq and in Iraqi Kurdistan in addition to its active participation in public and governmental institutions.
