The security situation in Kirkuk remains fragile - we are concerned by reports of increased terror attacks in Kirkuk and across the disputed territories over the last few months. The resuming of talks under UN supervision to settle the status of Kirkuk are a welcome sign, and we continue to encourage all sides to work towards resolving their issues. The ongoing priority must remain the defeat of Daesh in order to build stability in the disputed territories.
