MOSCOW, February 06, 22:09 /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow resolutely condemns a series of terrorist acts staged in Iraq on February 5, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
“The ongoing wave of violence in Iraq is a source of our serious concern,” the ministry said, adding the escalation of tensions was being accompanied by aggravation of the situation in Syria’s border provinces, especially in Anbar, where the Iraqi government troops and security forces were fighting against the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant group which is notoriously famous for its bloody actions in Iraq and Syria.
“Almost 200,000 people have fled their homes in the aforesaid-mentioned Iraqi provinces in recent days which seriously aggravated the humanitarian situation in the country. Moscow is voicing its solidarity with the actions of Iraqi leadership and army which are giving a resolute rebuff to terrorists. We believe that the world community should show its support for the efforts of the Iraqi government to counteract militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant linked to al-Quaeda and render assistance in improving the humanitarian situation in the republic,” the ministry went on to say.
“Terrorist sorties in Iraq make the need for a nationwide dialogue in that country stronger in order to ensure a consensus solution to the existing problems with account taken of the interests of all groups of Iraqi population,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
“Moscow resolutely condemns these criminal actions and presents genuine condolences to the families of the dead and wishes an early recovery to the injured,” the ministry added.
Several explosions rocked through Baghdad on February 5, claiming 30 human lives and injuring dozens of people. The biggest suicide bomber attack, in which 24 people died, took place on approaches to Iraq’s Foreign Ministry.
