The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine strongly condemns the terrorist attacks carried out in Baghdad on July 3, 2016 that killed and wounded a large number of Iraqi civilians, mostly children, youth and women.
The barbaric and criminal acts of radical Islamists who cynically stripped of innocent lives in the holy for all Muslims month of Ramadan are unjustifiable.
We express our deepest condolences to the bereaved families and wish quick recovery to the injured people.
Ukraine as an active member of the international anti-terrorist coalition fully supports the friendly Iraqi people in their struggle against the terrorist group «Islamic state» as well as wishes the Government of the Republic of Iraq to overcome as soon as possible the challenges of terrorism.
We call on the consolidation of Iraqi political parties and the strengthening joint actions by international community in combating one of the most dangerous threats to humanity – terrorism.
