On the 28th of November the Twenty-First Session of the Conference of the State Parties to the Chemical Weapons convention organized by the OPCW has started and will continue until 2 December. The Kurdish Coalition will also be present at this conference on behalf of the NGO’s who are part of our coalition who work on the prevention of the usage of chemical weapons in Iraq.
During the conference the delegation will keep reiterating the need of an Iraqi membership at the International Criminal Court , as the court is able to prosecute individuals who have used chemical weapons.
