Message from the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Iraq, Ms. Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert, to the people of the Kurdistan Region and Iraqis as a whole, on the occasion of Nowruz

Baghdad, 20 March 2020 - Nowruz, traditionally a time of renewal and a celebration of history and identity for Kurds and many other people around the world, comes at a particularly challenging time this year.

Normally, families and friends would gather and celebrate in colourful public displays as they welcome the arrival of spring, but this year we will celebrate at home as COVID-19 can only be fought with the full cooperation of each and every individual.

I would like to wish you a Happy Nowruz. Let us all find hope in the light of spring: may it shine bright across generations, communities and borders, bringing peace, good health and unity.

Nowroztan Pirozbet
