Foreign and Commonwealth Office – 2020 Press Release on Attack on Iraqi Military Bases

Below is a press release issued by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on 08/01/2020.

The Foreign Secretary calls for urgent de-escalation following an attack on Iraqi military bases.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:

“We condemn this attack on Iraqi military bases hosting Coalition – including British – forces.

We are concerned by reports of casualties and use of ballistic missiles.

We urge Iran not to repeat these reckless and dangerous attacks, and instead to pursue urgent de-escalation.

A war in the Middle East would only benefit Daesh and other terrorist groups.”
