France condemns the terrorist attack perpetrated on 2 January which once again left the Iraqi capital in mourning and claimed the lives of several dozen people.
We extend our condolences to the families of the victims and wish the injured a speedy recovery. France expresses its deepest sympathy to the Iraqi people and authorities.
Terrorism has taken a heavy toll on Iraq and France will continue to support the Iraqi authorities in their fight against this scourge, to which we are entirely committed, alongside our international coalition partners.
This was the purpose of the President of the French Republic’s visit to Iraq today.
