INA – BAGHDAD
UN Iraq Special Representative Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert visited Tahrir Square to meet the demonstrators and to engage with the people in the area.
While exchanging views and discussing possible ways to address the legitimate demands of peaceful demonstrators, SRSG Hennis-Plasschaert reiterated that no government could comprehensively tackle the legacy of the past and the present challenges in just one year in office.
Hennis-Plasschaert called for a national dialogue to identify prompt, meaningful responses, to break the vicious cycle of violence, and to unite against the perils of division and inaction.
“Standing together, Iraqis can find the common ground needed to shape a better future for all,” included a statement by UNAMI.
