The EU High Representative urges all Iraqi authorities to exercise utmost restraint during the ongoing demonstrations and to take adequate measures to ensure the safety of protestors. She wishes to express her sorrow over the loss of human lives during the events in Sulaymaniah and Al Kut and extend her condolences to the bereaved families.
