During the MUB Fifth Founding Conference, MUB president Naim Michael Hadodo stresses the need to continue the struggle  

BETH NAHRIN — During the MUB Fifth Founding Conference, President of the Bethnahrain National Council (Mawtbo Umthoyo D’Bethnahrin, MUB) Comrade Naim Michael Hadodo delivered a speech, in which he stressed the need to continue the struggle, out of loyalty to our righteous martyrs.

The speech of the MUB president read as follows:

“I would like to thank all the attendees and all those who did not have the opportunity to participate in the MUB Fifth Founding Conference. Thank you for your strong will and for the decisions of the next and decisive stage.

Our conference was titled on the basis of its solid foundational experience, but this does not negate the fact that so far, we still have many matters to be done.

After being re-elected by the MUB comrades, I feel that I am with the same vigor when I first began the struggle.

I assure you that we will not take any step backward as long as we are alive and derive our strength from Comrade Hanna and all the MUB martyrs.

The comrades have given me confidence that any step we take in the future will be successful. We are also confident, about our dream, that the MUB has become a legacy and a base for the Chaldean-Syriac-Assyrian-Aramean people to build their future state.

The circumstances are harsh and migration continues. We know that there are peoples who remained in the diaspora more than us, but these peoples made their decisive decision and made the necessary sacrifices.

We may have stepped in with greater strength and under more difficult circumstances. Despite that, I believe that our struggle which is united with our will and stances will eventually reach its goal.

On this basis, I say that we will not stop in the middle of the road. Rather, we must continue to preserve the blood of our martyrs, who are the torch of our path.

Let this conference be a gift and tribute to Comrade Saeed Malki. We will soon present greater gifts for our people.

I offer my congratulations to all comrades, and I invite them to implement the recommendations and decisions that have been taken, without any individual actions, but for the common interest.

Long live the MUB”
