Below is the text of Barzani’s message on the occasion of the Norouz holidays
Dear Kurds, Eid Mubarak
Greetings and respect and love of the people of Kurdistan, both young and old, bless Nawruz and the New Year for every Kurd wherever he is in this world.
The Noruz flame has been a symbol of freedom throughout the history of our fathers and forefathers and the loss of every Kurd for the rest of his life. So the night of Norouz and its burning flame, as well as being a symbol of freedom, is a symbol of progress after the stalemate, the renewal of decisions and the continuation of the struggle. Spirits, tears and precious lives, what made us the generations that followed, we see only one way, a way to continue until victory.
In Nowruz, the spirit of advancement and steadfastness returned to the Kurds and the struggle was resumed and continued after the most setbacks.
Every year, Norouz represents the entire Kurdish nation and every individual Kurd, beginning to strengthen and renew the will of victory, and to represent our ancestors the symbol of resistance and subjugation, even if they sometimes fail because of the unequal balance of power. But in Nowruz, And the belief in the inevitability of success.
I would like to say confidently and confidently that the history of Kurdistan today, and more than ever before, is in the process of labor for a new birth, and that the Kurdish liberation movement and the Kurdistan authority have reached a stage where they can not be eliminated because this power is the fruit of the Peshmerga struggle and the steadfastness of the people of Kurdistan.
Kurdistan is not on the verge of disaster, as some imagine, but through a proper internal dialogue, and by unifying our ranks, we can move forward with Kurdistan and move closer to a more prosperous and prosperous future.
The Kurdistan Region, because of the war, and the lack of internal political consensus, and political differences with Baghdad, and because of the economic crisis in the world, faced great difficulties, was the worst Baghdad since 2014 to cut the share of the Kurdistan Region of the budget. The economic problem was the hardest of course, but I would like to assure you that the economic situation will return to normal, and thanks to your cooperation and steadfastness, all things will return to normal. Your suffering and your sorrows make me feel sad from the bottom of my heart. But I have no doubt that this difficult economic situation can be overcome.
On this day, on the day of Nowruz, our hearts are wailing and failing to commemorate those heroes who sacrificed their lives in defense of Kurdistan, a tribute to their pure lives, a tribute to their wives, children, mothers, fathers and loved ones, and they will stay with us and in our hearts forever.
I salute the Ezidian brothers and brothers who made the greatest sacrifices in a war of war and suffered the most aches. Besides Halabja, Sinjar became a crown at the top of the history of our people full of sacrifices. It is true that our wounds and pain in Sinjar are very deep, but we are very confident that these wounds and pains are the nucleus of freedom and a more glamorous future for the Yazidis and for all the people of Kurdistan.
My greetings and warm greetings to the displaced people of Kirkuk, Sinjar, Makhmour, Khanaqin and other areas, and to the children of the disputed areas, Eid Mubarak for the Faily Kurds, the Kakais and the Shabak, whose national and national feeling today, with the burning of the Noruz flame, is more intense than any other day. Living in the Kurdistan Region, I hope that they can soon return to home soon McLaren with dearest and lofty.
A tribute to the Turkmen and Christians of Kurdistan, whose cooperation, participation and steadfastness in defending Kurdistan deserve all respect and respect.
Greetings to the Arab brothers living in the Kurdistan Region, and on this day we say to all national and religious components, that we have always been committed to peaceful coexistence and equality in the Kurdistan Region.
On this day, I salute Peshmerga Kurdistan heroes, who are willing to sacrifice their lives in defense of the blessed land of Kurdistan. Greetings to Asayish forces, police and traffic police and all the forces of the interior and security institutions in Kurdistan, who protect the superiority and dedication of the security and stability of the people of Kurdistan.
I also take this opportunity to greet the brotherly Iraqi people. I say to them: Whatever the political situation in the country and how relations between governments are, we will remain brothers forever. Iraq has enormous natural and human resources, and we are confident that by solving basic political problems and improving the country’s situation and management, Iraq will go toward the prosperity that the Iraqi people aspire to.
I salute all the neighboring peoples of Kurdistan. I take this opportunity to emphasize that the struggle of Kurdistan in Iraq has not and will not pose any danger or threat to any country. On the contrary, the success of the people of Kurdistan in Iraq will not return to their neighbors except with good and send messages of peace and reassurance to all peoples. And we assure them that we are a stabilizing factor in the region.
In conclusion, I bless the feast of Nowruz for all the peoples that celebrate it. On the occasion of Norouz we extend our thanks and appreciation to all the countries, peoples and personalities that respect the will and security of the people of Kurdistan and greetings to all the consulates and organizations that have helped the government and the people of Kurdistan during the past years.
Once again, I would like to congratulate everyone on the holiday of Nowruz and the new Kurdish year. I call on the citizens to preserve the cleanliness of the environment and the nature of Kurdistan during their trips and festivities and I recommend them to abide by traffic regulations for their safety.
Once again, Norouz blessed you all, and wish you a happy holiday ..
