Iran condemns attempt on Iraqi PM’s life

 Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh condemned the attempt on Iraqi prime minister’s life, adding that such actions were in the interests of those who violated the stability, independence, and territorial integrity of Iraq.

In a statement released on Sunday, Khatibzadeh condemned the attempt on Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi and underscored steady, continuous stance of the Islamic Republic of Iran in supporting stability, security, and peace in Iraq.

He called on all sides to be vigilant against plots targeting security and advancement of Iraq.

Such events are in the interests of those sides that have violated Iraq’s stability, security, independence, and territorial integrity during that past 18 years and have pursued their evil objectives in the region by creating terrorist groups and mischief-making, the spokesman stated.

Expressing content over survival of Iraqi prime minister, Khatibzadeh hoped that Iraq’s people, government, and political movements pave the ground for the country’s development through unity and sympathy.

Iraqi media reported last night that the prime minister’s home was targeted by an explosive-laden drone in an assassination attempt.
