Minister for the Middle East and North Africa condemns violent attacks in Iraq and urges leaders to work to combat terrorism and violence
Following this week’s violence in Iraq, Minister for the Middle East and North Africa, Alistair Burt, said:
My thoughts are with the families of those who have been killed or injured by the cowardly attacks in Iraq’s cities this week. The British Government condemns these attacks and calls for those responsible to be brought to justice. The UK stands by the people of Iraq in rejecting extremism, and I urge all political, religious and community leaders to work together to combat terrorism and violence.
