Ministry of Foreign Affairs – MOFA summoned the ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to object to the missile attack that targeted two bases in Anbar and Erbil.

“MOFA rejects these attacks, and consider them as a violation against the Iraqi sovereignty. We call on all parties concerned to show self-restraint, work to reduce tension in the region, and not to make Iraq a war zone to settle their accounts, and to resolve the crises that afflict the region,” included MOFA statement to Iraqi News Agency INA.

The statement also included that "Iraq is an independent country, and that its internal security is a priority and a main concern,”

Iraq will not allow being an arena for conflicts or a pathway to carry out attacks or a place to use its lands to harm neighbouring countries and that the Foreign Ministry will summon the ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to inform him of the above, according to the statement.
