Ezidikhan’s Prime Minister Waheed Mandoo Hammo has called on Iraq’s leadership to resume formal intergovernmental talks that had been abruptly suspended by Prime Minister al-Abadi on November 1, 2017 without explanation.

Prime Minister Waheed Mandoo Hammo’s grandfather Hammo Shiro was the Pasha (high level official in the Ottoman Empire) and charismatic leader of the Yezidis in the late 1800s to early 1900s who offered sanctuary in Yezidi territory in the Shingal to at least twenty thousand Armenians. He is credited with having saved their lives in a bold and courageous act of defiance toward marauding Turks and Kurds during the Armenian genocide between 1915 and 1917.

The ancient Yezidi nation is distinct from Kurds in both faith and civilization. Out of the compulsion to protect Yezidi culture and civilization we present our rights as an ancient, indigenous people of northern Iraq to establish the formation of this Provisional Government of Ezidikhan.
