(New York, 22 September 2017)
I welcome the adoption by the Security Council of resolution 2379 on accountability for the acts committed by Daesh in Iraq. The resolution explicitly condemns forced marriage, trafficking in persons, rape, sexual slavery and other forms of sexual violence, and recognises that the commission of such acts may amount to war crimes, crimes against humanity or genocide. I commend the Government of Iraq and the members of the Council for their unanimous resolve to ensure justice for survivors of such atrocities.
