22.03.2018

The Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemns the continued attacks and violations on the Iraqi border by the Turkish forces and the latest shelling of the villages of Mawan, Qassan and Sarkinan in the district of Soran in the province of Erbil, which led to the death of a number of unarmed civilians.

 

The Ministry deplores the continuation of these abuses against the unarmed civilians of our people in Kurdistan, which does not serve the development of relations between the two neighbors, it confirms its position rejecting the presence of any troops on Iraqi territory or the attempt to carry out military operations by any neighboring country.
