Mr. Johannes de Jong, Ms. Rima Tüzün and Mrs. Merry Fitzgerald attended the meeting.
Following the signing of their Common Declaration at the European Parliament on 19th November 2014, calling for the restoration of human rights to the non-ruling indigenous peoples of Iraq, the Turkmen, Yezidi and Chaldean-Syriac-Assyrian representatives to the EU, met to discuss the road map.
The first goal of this road map is to achieve a situation in which the EU together with each of the peoples concerned will negotiate with the governments of Iraq and Iraqi Kurdistan.
The second goal of this road map is to outline how the transition to a new and sustainable political future should look like.
This process is the implementation of the fourth article of the European Parliament resolution on Iraq and Syria of 18th September 2014.
