Iraq Sovereignty Should Not  Be Violated Iraq Sovereignty Should Not  Be Violated

The chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces says airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq should not be used as an excuse by Washington to violate the sovereignty of the two neighboring Arab states.

“The pretext of conducting strikes against IS terrorists cannot be used as authorization (for the US) to violate the sovereignty of the governments of Iraq and Syria,” Major General Hassan Firouzabadi said on Monday, Press TV reported.

“Any move (approved to be taken) by the US and its allies in the Paris conference should be made in coordination with the sovereign governments in Syria and Iraq according to international regulations,” Firouzabadi noted.
