Iraq Kurdistan urges Iran help against Daesh chemical attacks
Iraq’s Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has urged Iran’s help in fighting the rising threat of chemical attacks by the Daesh Takfiri group.
Daesh’s deployment of chemical weapons is a serious threat and we urge all our friends to help Kurds in this regard, Falah Mustafa Bakir, the head of the KRG’s Department of Foreign Relations, said in the Iraqi Kurdistan Erbil on Friday.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran has considerable experience in countering chemical attacks” and we need Tehran’s help in our battle against Takfiris, he added.
Bakir further hailed the friendly ties between Tehran and Erbil, saying the two sides are determined to boost their bilateral relations.
Back in August, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) voiced serious concern over reports that Daesh has been using chemical weapons in Iraq.
