Iran Attacks the Iraqi Kurdistan Region

We strongly condemn Iran’s continued missile and drone attacks against the Iraqi Kurdistan Region. We call on Iran, which has repeatedly and brazenly violated Iraq’s sovereignty, to stop these attacks and refrain from further threats against Iraq’s territorial integrity. The United States stands with our partners in Baghdad and Erbil and shares the Government of Iraq’s objective to preserve the country’s security, stability, and sovereignty.
