Baghdad, 7 March

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Distinguished Guests,
UN Colleagues,

Excellencies,
Ladies and gentlemen,
In the invitation to this forum, it was stated that there are many political and economic issues to be addressed in the aftermath of last year’s federal and Kurdistan regional elections.
Very true indeed. One can certainly not deny that the road to well-deserved sustainable stability in Iraq will be long and far from easy.

24 January 2019 - Today we celebrate the first International Day of Education.

Education transforms lives. As United Nations Messenger of Peace Malala Yousafzai once said: “one child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world”. Nelson Mandela rightly called education “the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
