UN Iraq Special Representative Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert sends warmest wishes to Iraqis on Eid-ul-Fitr

Baghdad, 23 May 2020 - Eid-ul-Fitr is traditionally a joyous occasion on which families mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan with public celebrations and outings. This year it will be subdued due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying restrictions which are affecting our lives like never before.

But despite the difficulties, the curfews, the threats to public health and anxiety over the future, I sincerely hope Eid-ul-Fitr will be source of renewed hope in humanity, instilling optimism in a better future.

Iraq faces multiple challenges, compounded by the pandemic, but the country can overcome with a spirit of unity and solidarity. On this blessed occasion, Eid Mubarak.
