Press Statement

We were informed of what some sites have reported based on leaks of official letters. The Embassy of the Republic of Iraq in Ankara is closely following this matter and believes that the accusations against the Ambassador are unjustified and lacking objectivity. As for the performance of the embassy of the Republic of Iraq in Turkey, that abides by the professional and legal rules, which reflect good performance and concern for national interests and the development of bilateral relations that will be culminated by the visit of the Iraqi Foreign Minister to Ankara in preparation for the visit of the Prime Minister on December 17 at the head of a high-level delegation.

We call on the media to be careful, to investigate information from its source, and to avoid offending the bilateral relationship with our neighbour, Turkey, prior to the visit of the Minister and the Prime Minister, upon the invitation of the Turkish side.
