Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi affirmed the government's seriousness in protecting diplomatic missions, noting that Iraq relations with all countries are good.
This came during a TV interview on IMN (Iraqi Media Network: Iraqia), where Al-Kadhimi said, "The Iraqi constitution stipulates that the government builds the best relations with countries to serve the Iraqi people," stressing that "Iraq's relations with all countries are good and based on common interests, in all fields: economic, security and health,"
"There are those who try to disturb Iraq's relations with other countries by targeting diplomatic missions, but the Iraqi government is serious about protecting these missions from any attacks, as it is proud of its relations with all countries," he added.
Al-Kadhimi explained, “About the threats to close the US embassy in Iraq, Washington didn’t send any threat to close its embassy in Iraq, but we have received annoyance and concerns from Washington about protecting their missions in Iraq and this is normal,” stressing that “Iraq has important relations with Washington, these relations must be protected,"
He continued, saying: "The government has made great gains in the strategic dialogue with Washington, where we have reached many agreements that are in the interest of Iraqi society"
