Governor of a province in northern Iraq says UK and US are responsible for helping Iraq.
The governor of Dohuk province in northern Iraq, Farhad Atrushi, has said the US and UK are politically and ethically responsible for helping Iraq. He said that Kurdish authorities needed at least two months and hundreds of millions of dollars to be able to provide shelter for Iraqi refugees.
There is warning of the threat of “genocide”, he declared. “We have hundreds of thousands [of refugees]. We’re going to face an international humanitarian catastrophe because many of these kids and children will die.”
