Statement by KRG Spokesperson on the Islamic New Year

Erbil, Kurdistan Region, Iraq (GOV.KRD) – I would like to warmly congratulate all Muslims in Kurdistan, Iraq, and around the world who are celebrating the Islamic – Hijri – New Year today and extend my best wishes.

I hope that this Hijri New Year will bring peace, prosperity, and the end of COVID-19 in our country.

I encourage everyone to be mindful that a new wave of COVID-19 is currently threatening the world and the Kurdistan Region, and I call on everyone to comply with health guidelines when celebrating to protect yourselves, your loved ones, and the most vulnerable in our society from the deadly virus and its new variants.
