Letter Published in The National UAE on 16 June 14 Iraqis should use talk, not violence

Your editorial, Iraq’s religious ­divide opened door to ISIL (June 14), was thought-provoking.

Ever since their country was invaded by the Americans and their allies, the people of Iraq have seen no peace.

Now Iraq would appear to be in a state of civil war. Violence is not the answer; all groups should engage in a comprehensive peace dialogue.

As an oil-rich nation, Iraq should harness its natural resources for everyone’s benefit, and tackle its problems with diplomacy.
