On Monday, October 18, 2021, the President of the Republic of Iraq, Barham Salih congratulated Iraqi people on the Occasion of the Prophet Mohammad birthday.
It is of great occasion to inspire the noble values and to learn the lessons that should be taken from fragrant biography of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in making peace, fraternity and brotherhood among human beings, Iraqi President Salih said.
Iraq is going through a critical juncture, and enormous challenges and major national tasks are still ahead of us, he underscored.
President Salih emphasized that there is an urgent need for bringing our national position together, and dialogue should be prevailed on the basis of accepting the other, and the country's interest should be taken as precedence above any political ambitions or other considerations.
Furthermore, we have to step up our collective efforts to carry out our national tasks and to meet Iraqi people's aspiration to live a life of freedom and dignity, he added.
The respect for the will of the Iraqi people, for the constitutional process and for the democratic and peaceful path in the country is national duty, and challenging the results of the elections is a right guaranteed by the Iraqi Constitution and electoral laws and regulations, Iraqi President Salih said.
Moreover, legal frameworks of peaceful negotiations should be taken in these matters, and public security and public property should be maintained, while peace and security in the country should be promoted, he underlined.
