The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine is concerned about the escalation of the situation in the Middle East after the attacks on the US base and the US Embassy in Iraq, as well as the relevant US actions in Baghdad. This was reported by the Ukraine's MFA press service.

"Ukraine proceeds from the urgent need to prevent further escalation and any acts of revenge that could threaten the stability of the region and global security," the statement said.

We recall that on the night of January 3 in Iraq, Baghdad's international airport was subjected to rocket fire, which killed at least 7 people.

Three Katyusha missiles fell at the airport near the air cargo terminal.

Soon it became known that General Qassem Suleymani was killed by order of US President Donald Trump.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called the assassination of El Quds commander General Qassem Suleimani “a huge mistake by the Americans.” He said this during a meeting with the relatives of the deceased.

"The Americans did not even understand what a huge mistake they made. And they will feel the consequences of this crime for many years to come," Rouhani said.

General Qassem Suleimani was killed on January 3 by order of US President Donald Trump as a result of a missile strike at Baghdad International Airport.

Soon, in a statement, Trump called Suleimani "the number one terrorist in the world."

The Iranian president has promised to avenge the death of Suleimani.
