I congratulate the Kurdistan Teachers’ Union on the 58th anniversary of its establishment. I also congratulate all teachers in Kurdistan and wish them continued success in their work. Their resilience, sacrifices, and efforts in educating generations of students in Kurdistan deserve respect and appreciation. Teachers have played a key role in the development process of education in Kurdistan, both in the past and present. In difficult times, during revolutions, teachers refused to abandon schools and continued to serve and educate generations of students.

Teachers are among the most important groups of any society and are the main pillars of development. As we mark this day, we reiterate our support for their rights and believe that they deserve better standards of living. I thank all teachers and wish them the best on the anniversary of the establishment of the Kurdistan Teachers’ Union.
