On March 6th 2021, Mustafa Al-Kadhimi, the Iraqi Prime Minister, declared that March 6 will be a national day of tolerance and coexistence in Iraq, via his Twitter account.

The declaration came shortly after the meeting between Grand Ayatollah al-Sistani and Pope Francis as well as the interfaith meeting in Ur, land of Abraham.

According to the biblical tradition from the Old Testament, Abraham came from the plain of Ur. The place is therefore important for Muslims, Jews and Christians as all three religions consider Abraham to be the progenitor.

“To celebrate this historic meeting in Najaf between Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani and Pope Francis, and the historic interreligious meeting in the ancient city of Ur, we declare March 6 as a national holiday of tolerance and coexistence in Iraq,” he wrote on the social network.
