World Leaders Condemn Attack On Iraqi Premier's Residence


US President Joe Biden has strongly condemned the terrorist attack on the residence of Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi. He praised Kazemi's call for calm, restraint and dialogue in Iraq.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in a phone call told Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi on Sunday he strongly condemned an attack on his home in Baghdad, Johnson's office said.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's spokesman also said he strongly condemns the failed assassination on al-Kadhimi.

Kadhimi escaped unharmed in an assassination attempt by armed drone in Baghdad, officials said on Sunday, an incident that raised tension in the country weeks after a general election disputed by Iran-backed militia groups.

"He strongly condemned the attack on the prime minister’s home in Baghdad and offered his sympathies to those injured," Johnson's office.

"He made clear that the UK stands by the Iraqi people and supports Prime Minister Khadimi’s efforts to form a government following elections, which is vital for the long-term stability of Iraq."

Earlier on Sunday foreign secretary Liz Truss said Britain supported Kadhimi's call for calm and restraint.
