Press release

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemns, in strong and repeated terms, the artillery and drone attacks carried out by the Iranian side this morning, on a number of areas of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, which left many safe citizens between a martyr and a wounded person.

This unilateral, hostile approach will not be a factor in advancing solutions that lead to stability, and our positions have preceded to indicate the danger of this blatant encroachment on Iraq’s sovereignty and the security of its citizens, and what it reflects of a continuing threat that will cause confusion in the region and raise the level of tension in it.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will take high-level diplomatic measures in this regard, without hesitation in preserving and safeguarding Iraq’s sovereignty, in a manner that enhances the security of its people.
