Iraq – France condemns the latest Iranian airstrikes in the autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan (21 November 2022)
France condemns in the strongest possible terms the latest series of airstrikes carried out by Iran in the autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan, for which Iran claimed responsibility.
These strikes, which come less than one week after the previous round, are a flagrant violation of Iraqi sovereignty and international law and threaten the stability of Iraq and the autonomous region of Kurdistan, within Iraq’s borders. Such actions must cease.
France condemns all violations of Iraq’s sovereignty. We call for the respect of Iraq’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and reiterate our commitment to the stability of the autonomous region of Kurdistan, within Iraq’s borders. We assure the Iraqi and Kurdish regional authorities of our solidarity.
France calls on Iran to end its destabilizing activities and to refrain from escalating tensions in the region.
