On the occasion of Eid al-Fitr, Kurdistan Regional Government Prime Minister, Nechirvan Barzani, issued the following message:
On the occasion of Eid al-Fitr, I extend my best wishes to the families of martyrs, families of Peshmergas, and congratulate the Muslim sisters and brothers in Kurdistan and around the world.
In this Eid, we appreciate and remember our highly-esteemed martyrs. We salute those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation to provide a safer Kurdistan for its people. It is because of their sacrifices we are heading towards a brighter future.
I hope this Eid, as it is a celebration of peace and reconciliation, also becomes the Eid that inspires coexistence, harmony, and unity so that we work together to prevail over challenges and address pressing issues; so that we can celebrate our festivities in a Kurdistan, where the rights of all its citizens are guaranteed and protected.
Again, I extend my best wishes to everyone on this holy occasion.
Kurdistan Regional Government
