It was with profound sadness and heartfelt grief that we received the news of the tragic Aqaba port incident which our brothers in the Hashemite Kingdom had been exposed to, which caused the loss of the lives of a number of civilians.

In this hour of grief, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs extends its condolences to the government and people of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, asking God’s mercy and bliss to the victims and a speedy recovery and safety for the injured ones.

Accept our sincere feelings, and Iraq’s stand by its brothers in their plight.
