The representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations in Iraq, Jeanine Blasskhaert, announced on Tuesday that she was about to leave her post, while paying tribute to the Iraqis.

During her briefing at the Security Council, Blasskhart said: “In December 2018 I arrived in Baghdad. Now, five years later, it’s almost time to say goodbye and expect to leave my position at the end of May. It’s not easy, and in good and bad, Iraq has simply become a part of me.”

She added: “I can only hope that one day, God willing, people from all over the world will get to know the real Iraq. It is a country of immense beauty. A country with a rich diversity and culture, where there are many opportunities to seize it.”

She concluded by saying: “I commend all Iraqi men and women. For their sacrifices, strength and the depth of their commitment to building a prosperous, democratic and peaceful Iraq. Long live Iraq.”
