Iraq Angry With Ongoing US, UK AggressionIraq, with its different ethnic groups and minorities, has suffered significantly from different forms of discrimination, injustice and deprivation due to the comprehensive economic sanctions and the continued military aggression by the United States and the United Kingdom, Iraqi representative Samir K.Al-Nima said on Tuesday.
The tragic suffering of the Iraqi people is "but one manifestation of the racial attitude by the U.S. and UK governments against Iraqi people, an attitude that has led to genocide with the death of more than 1.5 million people," the Iraqi delegate said here at the ongoing general debate at the World Conference Against Racism.
Commenting on the call by Africans and African descent for slavery and colonialism compensation, Al-Nima said: "Undoubtedly, the African continent suffered the most from racism, racial discrimination, slavery and human trafficking. The African people suffered significantly during the era of colonialism, which was characterized by the pillage of the wealth and resources of the African continent."
The colonial powers should be held accountable and have to apologize to and compensate the African peoples for their acts, the Iraqi representative emphasized.
