Press release

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has summoned the Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the Republic of Iraq, and informed him of the Iraqi government’s protest against the Iranian missile attack on the Erbil Governorate in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq on 13/03/2022, and the material losses it inflicted, and the damage to civilian facilities and housing for citizens it caused, in addition to instilling fear among the residents of those areas.

As the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reiterates its condemnation of the flagrant violation of the sovereignty and territory of the Republic of Iraq, it affirms that such positions will only be a factor in violating the principles of good neighbourliness and will cast a shadow on the scene of the region and make it more complicated.
