In an emergency session in Geneva Pansieri said,” The effect of the ongoing conflict on the children of Iraq has been catastrophic. Many have become direct victims of the conflict, while others have been subjected to physical and sexual abuse, whose scars may remain with them throughout their lives.”

“The international community must intensify its efforts to protect all Iraqis, including ethnic and religious communities and those who are particularly vulnerable,” Pansieri said.
