Dear friends around the world,
Happy New Year.
When I took office one year ago, I appealed for 2017 to be a year for peace.

The year 2017 marked a shift in leadership at the United Nations as Secretary-General António Guterres began his term at a time of heightened global challenges.

Najaf, 13 December 2017 - Iraq’s victory over the Daesh terrorists provides an opportunity for the country to shed its painful past and confidently embark on the road to peace and development, the United Nations emphasised at a conference on national reconciliation in Najaf today, urging Iraqis of all affiliations to seize the momentum and build on it to ensure a prosperous future for the younger generation.

On the occasion of the International Human Rights Day UNAMI Public Information Office in cooperation with Mahdi Abdulkareem produced this short video to promote one of the universal human rights.

Human rights are the foundation of peaceful societies and sustainable development.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights establishes the equality and dignity of every person.

It makes governments responsible for ensuring people can enjoy their inalienable rights and freedoms.
