Nadhim Zahawi calls on UK Government to back devolution for Mosul

11th July 2017
Speaking in Foreign Office Questions, Nadhim Zahawi calls on the Foreign Secretary to urge the Iraqi Administration to give reassurance to the people of Mosul by looking seriously at devolving power to the people of Mosul.

As well as the physical rebuilding of Mosul, one of the ways to reassure the people of Mosul is to devolve power to them, for which the Iraqi constitution allows. Will the Foreign Secretary urge the Iraqi Administration to look seriously at devolving power to the people of Mosul?

 

I am grateful to my hon. Friend. He is of course right. Iraq is an ethnically divided and religiously divided country. We must make sure that everybody feels properly represented in the new constitution, and devolution to Mosul is certainly an option that we will be exploring.
