I congratulate the people of Iraq on the fifth anniversary of the liberation of Mosul, and have mercy on the righteous martyrs who made glory to the nation of Iraq.
The day of the liberation of Mosul is an epic for Iraqi patriotism, which demonstrated its strength and victory over the black terrorism and the remnants of the Baath and followers of greedy agendas in the land of Iraq. Iraqi patriotism will not die, and just as it defeated terrorism, it will win all the battles for unity, identity and future.
We inspire from this day, victory and elevation, and that clarity of vision, holiness of purpose, steadfastness, sacrifice and rational management are the foundations by which and through we win the battles of existence, no matter how prolonged evil and great challenges.
On this Iraq Day, I call on all political forces to overcome their differences for the sake of Iraq. I encourage them to create hope for the people of Iraq. The true leadership is the one that sees no honor and interest for itself except through the pride and interests of its people.
A salute to our forces of all kinds, eternity to the martyrs who made victory, and glory to Iraq and its people.
