BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 A.M.) – In a statement issued by its Foreign Ministry, Egypt condemned the “Turkish and Iranian military interventions” in northern Iraq.

The Ministry considered that these “interventions and hostilities” represent “a continuation of the series of repeated violations against brotherly Iraq, in violation of all international covenants and covenants that provide for respect for the sovereignty of states and the adoption of principles of good neighborliness.”

The statement stressed, “Egypt totally rejects any interference affecting the sovereignty of any of the brotherly Arab countries, taking into account the consequences of those actions in deepening the instability in the region.”

They pointed out that “Egypt calls on all parties to respect the sovereignty of Iraq, and to distance it from any international or regional conflicts that prevent the realization of the aspirations of the brotherly government and people of Iraq in stability and development.”

This statement came against the background of Turkey launching a new military operation against the “Kurdistan Workers Party” in northern Iraq, in a move that Baghdad protested.
