MOSCOW, November 5. /TASS/. There have been no requests - official or unofficial - from the Iraqi authorities to Russia for military strikes against terrorists in that country and there are no reasons for considering such a possibility for now, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said.
"There have been no official or unofficial request from Iraqi counterparts," Peskov said. In the wake of media rumors Russia’s ambassador in Baghdad Ilya Morgunov said the Iraqi authorities did not rule out the possibility of addressing Russia with such a request Peskov said that he had no information on that score at the moment.
Asked if Moscow was considering the possibility of attacking terrorist targets in Iraq, Peskov said, "No we have no reasons for that."
