Press Statement

Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemns the air attack took place last night on a site on the Iraqi-Syrian border.

The Ministry reiterates its complete rejection of making Iraq a part of any conflict or confrontation to settle scores on its lands, which represents an assault and a breach of the national sovereignty and a clear violation of the international norms and covenants.

We affirm our adherence to Iraq’s sovereignty and unity, and rely on everything that enhances this, through continued coordination and communication with various parties and through diplomatic initiatives and endeavors that ensure the non-repetition of such unacceptable and condemned hostilities.

The Iraqi government is proceeding with its investigative procedures in a manner that guarantees the sovereign right, to prevent any escalation it deems to disrupt the security and stability of Iraq.
