Today, Wednesday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced coordination with joint operations and the regional authorities to limit the recurrence of bombing, while noting that the bombing of Iraqi territory from neighboring countries will not end efforts to combat terrorism.
The ministry's spokesman, Ahmed Al-Sahaf, said, "The Iraqi Foreign Ministry has taken a number of steps towards the Iranian bombing, including issuing a strong statement and condemning in the strongest terms the result of this provocative unilateral Iranian aggression that affected areas of the Kurdistan Region and left many martyrs and wounded."
He added, "The Iranian ambassador to Baghdad was summoned and a strongly worded protest note was handed to him."
He added that "there is coordination between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Joint Operations Command and the Kurdistan Regional Authorities, to limit the recurrence of bombing operations on Iraqi territory," explaining that "the continuation of the strikes constituted a serious qualitative shift that started with artillery shelling and passed through missile strikes and then ended with drones carrying explosive materials."
He continued, "The Ministry of Foreign Affairs considered this bombing a dangerous shift that harms the principles of good neighborliness," explaining that "the continuation of the bombing will not end efforts to combat terrorism in the region, but rather will increase security tension and cast a shadow at the level of Iraq and the region."
