Report of Iran Moving Missiles to Iraq Lacks Evidence: Baghdad
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iraq’s foreign ministry said on Sunday it was “astonished” at a Reuters report that Iran had moved missiles to Iraq and that the article was “without evidence”.
“Iraq is not obliged to respond to media reports that lack tangible evidence backing up their claims and allegations,” the ministry said in a statement, Reuters reported.
“All state institutions in Iraq uphold Article 7 of the constitution, which prohibits the use of Iraqi land as a base or passage to be used in operations targeting the security of other states,” it said.
The Iraqi foreign ministry added that it was “astonished at the allegations” contained in the report.
Iran on Saturday rejected the report, which it said aimed to hurt the country’s ties with neighbors.
