Statement of the Chaldean Patriarchate on the 4th of January 2020
Cardinal Louis Raphael Sako
Patriarch of the Chaldean Church
Iraqis are still in shock of what happened last week. They have fears of having Iraq turned to a battleground, rather than being a sovereignty homeland, capable of protecting its citizens and wealth.
In such critical and tense circumstances, it is wise to hold a round table meeting for all the parties concerned to have a reasonable and civilized dialogue that spares Iraq the unexpected consequences.
We implore the Almighty God to grant Iraq and the region a peaceful, stable, secure and “normal life” that we are longing for.
