Iraq Complains to the UN and Wants US Troops to Leave the Country

The Iraqi Foreign Ministry has submitted official complaints to the Secretary-General of the United Nations (UN) and the Security Council about US airstrikes on Iraqi soil.


The attacks killed the Iranian general Qassem Soleimani and several Iraqi militia leaders.

The Iraqi parliament also adopted a resolution calling for an end to the presence of foreign troops in the country.

The UN complaint is about “US attacks and aggression on Iraqi military positions and the assassination of high-level Iraqi and Allied military commanders on Iraqi land,” the ministry said in a statement.

The ministry describes the attacks as “a dangerous violation of Iraqi sovereignty and the US presence conditions in Iraq.”

The ministry calls on the Security Council to condemn the attacks.
