    Sayyid Ammar Al Hakim, head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, extended his wishes to His eminence the Chaldean Patriarch of Iraq and the world, Patriarch Raphael I Sako, on the occasion of Christmas and the New Year on Saturday 26/12/2015 in a cable he sent to His eminence.

    Sayyid Al Hakim considered that the fact that Christmas coincided with the birth of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) is proof that Muslims and Christians are one united and coherent people who will not be divided by discord and sectarianism, praying the Almighty to grant Iraqis and the world the opportunity to celebrate these days again with lots of blessings and mercy.
