Brian Hayes, Fine Gael Dublin MEP, has been appointed as the Vice President of the European Parliament's Iraq Delegation.
After his appointment he said: "Over the last number of months the security and political situation in Iraq has deteriorated substantially. It is estimated that in 2014 there have been 12,653 civilian deaths.
"The European Union has a responsibility to work with the new Iraqi government in every way possible. ISIS represents a threat, not just to Iraq, but to the entire region. Clearly, they will stop at nothing in fermenting their brand of fundamentalism, which is rotten to the core
"In the coming weeks I intend to meet with my EU delegation colleagues and hopefully members of the Iraqi Parliament to discuss how we can work together for the benefit of Iraq and the region.
"Europe must be prepared to lead the international community in helping to reconstruct Iraq. Appalling decisions were taken over the past decade, which have made the development of a new Iraq more difficult. Europe needs to work with the new unified Iraqi Government to secure a better future for all of the people in Iraq.
"The new threat of ISIS provides an opportunity for the world and the region to work together. Europe can be a key bridge in making that happen."
