SRSG Hennis-Plasschaert New Year’s Message

The entire UN family sends its best wishes to all Iraqis for the year 2020.

Over the past months, many Iraqis have paid the ultimate price to make their voices heard in calling for change in Iraq.

It is our wish that all the girls and boys, women and men of Iraq will see their brave determination result in lasting progress.

As we set our sights on the future, I join Secretary-General António Guterres in finding hope in the youth of the world.

“Keep speaking out”, he said. “Keep thinking big. Keep pushing boundaries. And keep up the pressure”.

The world needs it.

May the year 2020 bring peace, good health and happiness to Iraq.

Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert
Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Iraq
