The situation continues to remain tense in various parts of Iraq. The actions of radicals have resulted in a great number of victims. Thousands of people have been displaced from their homes. The atrocities against civilian population, especially against ethnic and religious minorities continue, Spokesman of Armenia's Foreign Minister Tigran Balayan said to the question of Arminfo news agency concerning the recent events in Iraq.

"We are deeply concerned by the violence against the Iraqi Yazidis by extremists.  We share the indignation of Yazidis living in Armenia concerning the ongoing tragic events. We are unanimous with the international community on the question of necessity to immediately stop the violence of extremists in Iraq. The Armenian Missions in the UN and other international organizations have received respective directives to closely cooperate with stakeholders on this issue," Balayan said.
