UK Ambassador to Iraq Jonathan Wilks has expressed concern over the recent missile strike by Iran on headquarters of Iranian Kurdish opposition parties in Kurdistan Region’s Koya.


Speaking at a press conference, Wilks said the attack could adversely impact the stability in the region.

He pointed out that every state has the right to defend itself, however, as he argued, the strike was not a defensive move, but an offensive one that violated Iraq’s sovereignty in the first place.

The missile attack, carried out last Saturday, targeted the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran (PDKI) and Iranian Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP-Iran). 

It killed 15 people and left at least 42 with wounds.
