Iran Warns Against US Military Moves In Iraq

By

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman warned that the recent American military moves in Iraq could escalate the regional tensions.

In a statement on Wednesday, Seyed Abbas Mousavi denounced the American military presence and moves in Iraq.

“While the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the international community are emphasizing the need for halting the tension-creating and warmongering measures amid the outbreak of coronavirus, these (US) moves are against the official and announced will of the Iraqi government, Parliament and people, would create tensions, and could steer the regional situation towards instability and catastrophic conditions,” he warned.

The Iranian spokesperson also called on the American forces to respect the Iraqi government and people’s demands for withdrawal from that country and to avoid creating tensions in the region.

His comments came against a backdrop of reports that American troops are preparing for a confrontation with Iraqi popular forces in the Arab country and that the Pentagon has been reviewing action plans for operations in the coming weeks.
