The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

In his an­nual Christ­mas and New Year mes­sage, Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent Ma­soud Barzani re­as­sured the Christian com­mu­nity in Iraq that the KRG would con­tinue pro­vid­ing pro­tec­tion and shel­ter to them and other com­mu­ni­ties flee­ing the bar­baric and ter­ror­ist group of ISIS.

“I would like to em­pha­size that the Christian com­mu­nity is a key com­po­nent of this coun­try and I un­der­stand their pains and suf­fer­ing. I re­as­sure them that there is no place for ter­ror­ism, vi­o­lence and bar­bar­ity in Kur­dis­tan; we have all been wit­ness­ing how the brave Pesh­merga are de­feat­ing ISIS ter­ror­ists on all fronts and al­ready lib­er­ated most ar­eas un­der their con­trol,” said the Pres­i­dent in his mes­sage.

The Pres­i­dent also urged the Chris­tians to stay in the coun­try. “Christian ar­eas still un­der ISIS con­trol will also be lib­er­ated. We hope that the Chris­tians IDPs will soon re­turn to their homes. I urge Chris­tians against emi­gra­tion. We must live to­gether and en­rich our tra­di­tion of peace­ful co-ex­is­tence and tol­er­ance."
