Iraq has been living through one of the most difficult phases of its modern history, the head of the UN mission in the country told the Security Council on Wednesday.

Ján Kubiš briefed the Council on how a terrorism onslaught, but also political stagnation and a grave humanitarian situation, are affecting the country.

One-third of Iraq is now under the control and governance of the terrorist group ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant).
