SRSG Kubiš’s message on Eid Al-Adha

Baghdad, 20 August 2018 – Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq, Mr. Ján Kubiš, extends his warmest greetings and best wishes to the Iraqi people in general and Muslims in particular on the occasion of Eid Al-Adha.

“Eid Al-Adha, the Feast of Sacrifice, is one of the most important occasions for Muslims worldwide. It is a time of joy and sharing, within families and among communities,” Mr. Kubiš said. “At such a time, however, we should also remember those who have lost loved ones, or are displaced from their homes, or who bear the scars of conflict. This year, Eid Al-Adha coincides with the International Day of Remembrance and Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism. It is therefore an opportune time for us to remember Iraq’s many victims of terrorism”.

“Let us all come together to work for peace and prosperity, and join hands in rebuilding this beautiful country,” Mr Kubis added. “Eid Mubarak to all”.
