Iraq – Attacks in Erbil and Nineveh Province (15 April 2021)


France utterly condemns the attacks in Erbil, already targeted by rocket attacks on February 15, and Nineveh Province last night.

It reaffirms its attachment to Iraq’s sovereignty and integrity, as well as to the stability of the Kurdish autonomous region. The Iraqi government and the Kurdistan Regional Government must deepen their cooperation in order to identify the perpetrators of these attacks and, more broadly, ensure the security of all Iraqis.

France reaffirms its determination to continue its efforts within the framework of the Global Coalition against Daesh together with its local and international partners, with whom it reaffirms its wholehearted solidarity.
