Ukraine strongly condemns the assassination attempt against the Prime Minister of the Republic of Iraq Mustafa Al-Kadhimi on November 7, 2021. The commentary of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry was published by its press service.
"We are convinced that such acts of terror and violence will not impede embodiment of the aspirations of the Iraqi people and will not stop their government's efforts to build a sovereign, democratic and prosperous state. We call on Iraqi political forces to exercise restraint, continue the dialogue and ensure realization of the will of the Iraqi people reflected in the results of the recent parliamentary elections," the message reads.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs calls on the citizens of Ukraine to temporarily stop traveling to Ethiopia due to the aggravation of the security situation and the introduction of a state of emergency in this country.
"Those citizens who are on the territory of Ethiopia are strongly advised to avoid visiting the northwestern provinces of the country, restrict movement between settlements, register in the voluntary registration of Ukrainian citizens when traveling abroad ("FRIEND") electronic system, track messages on the development of the situation and consider the possibility of reducing the length of stay in the country," the message reads.
Ukrainians who are in an emergency situation, or have faced other circumstances that require a response from the consulate, are advised to immediately contact the Ukrainian Embassy in Ethiopia.
