The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic strongly condemns the attack on the premises of the Embassy of the United States of America in Baghdad on 31 December 2019. This act of violence violates the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. The Ministry also underlines that the government of the Republic of Iraq and its security forces are obliged to provide for the permanent protection of the diplomatic missions, their premises and personnel. We call upon the authorities of Iraq to adopt measures without undue delay to prevent the repetition of any similar acts of violence.
