German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock arrived in the Sinjar district in Iraq on Thursday, for the third day of her visit to the country.
The German minister was received by Dr. Mirza Danayi, director of the House of Coexistence and was given a tour of the building.
The house is a cultural and social centre that represents the different ethnic groups living in Sinjar in the Nineveh governorate.
The German army is part of the global coalition that was created to fight the Islamic State group, and has a presence in the Kurdish region of Iraq.
In October, the German parliament voted to extend its military presence in Iraq, which is mainly based in the northern region.
