Debatten i regeringen
Den britiske regering ønskede ikke i april 2016 at støtte en parlamentsbeslutning om at betegne overgrebene som et forsøg på folkedrab.
Mrs Louise Ellman (Liverpool, Riverside) (Lab/Co-op): Would the Minister describe what is happening to the Yazidis as genocide?
Mr Swayne: I believe that the decision as to what constitutes genocide is properly a judicial one. The International Criminal Court correspondent, Fatou Bensouda, has decided that, as Daesh is not a state party, this does not yet constitute genocide.
