Prime Minister’s message on 122nd anniversary of Kurdish journalism

Erbil, Kurdistan Region, Iraq (GOV.KRD) - I extend my warmest wishes to journalists in the Kurdistan Region on the 122nd anniversary of Kurdish journalism and the publication of 'Kurdistan', the first Kurdish newspaper.

I also congratulate you on the 22nd anniversary of the establishment of the Kurdistan Journalists Syndicate.

Media outlets in the Kurdistan Region are playing an important role in communicating government guidelines designed to protect the public from the coronavirus pandemic.

I also pay tribute to the intellectuals and journalists serving the people of Kurdistan, as well as those who lost their lives defending our region.

Masrour Barzani
Kurdistan Regional Government
Prime Minister
