Justin Trudeau gives Newroz message

By Rudaw 21/3/2016
-
ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - Soon after US President Barack Obama gave his annual Newroz message Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also sent his message to people marking the occasion. 

Beginning with the Persian saying "Har rozetan Newroz, newrozetan piroz," Trudeau wished "all Canadian celebrating Newroz a happy new year."
 
"Newroz marks the first day of spring and the beginning of the new year in the Persian calendar," Trudeau explained in a video published on Sunday before calling Newroz "an occasion for friends and family to come to gather and celebrate over the Haft sin table."

"It's also a chance for us to recognize the significant contributions and strong heritage of Canadians of Persian and central Asian background," he added.
 
Trudeau's predecessor, former Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper also sent a Newroz greeting to Kurds in 2012.

President Obama gave his Newroz message to people throughout the world on the eve of Sunday's holiday calling.

Rudaw, would you please also post the Turkey PM and president Newroz message as well? Let see how civilized it is? Turkey has lots to learn.

It's nice that Trudeau sent a Nowroz message. It would be even better if he sent back the F18s to bomb ISIS again.

Persian persian persiaaaannss ..... Nothing Kurdish about Newroz. Persians hang our Kurds in the streets from the highest cranes they can find and we celebrate their 'newroz' festival more than them even... How low can we go? KURD NOT PERSIAN

US only can trust the Kurds, it's been long due that he dumps Turkey and supports Kurds unconditionally.
