The Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemns the abortive incident that targeted innocent citizens in Manhattan, USA, which caused a number of casualties and injuries.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs expresses its solidarity with the families of the victims and wishes speedy recovery of the injured.
The repetition of such incidents confirms that terrorism does not exclude a country, so cooperation must be worked out to eliminate extremism and put in place a comprehensive mechanism to eliminate it.
Dr. Ahmed Mahjoob
Spokesperson of Ministry of Foreign Affairs
