I extend my best wishes to those who observe Easter in the Kurdistan Region, Iraq and around the world. I hope God answers your prayers and I wish you a peaceful celebration.
Kurdistan has long been a cradle for the coexistence of different religions, and the Kurdistan Regional Government wishes to take this opportunity to reiterate its commitment to defend, protect and develop religious tolerance.
Easter coincides with the coronavirus pandemic which has hit the entire world, including the Kurdistan Region. At this time, I call on the public to continue abiding by public health guidelines.
