SRSG Kubiš in Ramadan Greetings Wishes Iraqis Peace and Unity: My Thoughts are with the Suffering Families

Baghdad, 06 June 2016 – The Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Iraq (SRSG), Ján Kubiš, sends his warmest greetings to the Muslims of Iraq and to all Iraqis on the advent of the holy month of Ramadan.

“This is a month of spiritual reflection, peace and compassion. It is when families get together, and is also a time to remember those who are suffering and who are less fortunate”, Mr. Kubiš said. “On this holy month, my thoughts are with the families who lost their loved ones and those Iraqis who were injured from the violence, as well as the civilians who have been displaced and those caught in the fighting or remain captive. This is indeed a difficult time for them and their families to observe a holy occasion in pain and uncertainty”.

The SRSG emphasizes that the United Nations will continue to work tirelessly with Iraqi and international partners on the political and humanitarian levels towards restoring peace and security for this country and alleviating some of the suffering of the civilian population.

“May this month mark the beginning of the country and its people coming together to unite behind the main national principles. May it also herald the start of the end of the political divisions and lead to the emergence of an Iraq free of the violence and conflict that has buffeted it for years”.

“My warmest greetings to the Muslims of Iraq and to all Iraqis. May they observe it in peace and unity. Ramadan Kareem”, the SRSG said.
