The Foreign Secretary calls for urgent de-escalation following an attack on Iraqi military bases.
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:
We condemn this attack on Iraqi military bases hosting Coalition - including British - forces.
We are concerned by reports of casualties and use of ballistic missiles.
We urge Iran not to repeat these reckless and dangerous attacks, and instead to pursue urgent de-escalation.
A war in the Middle East would only benefit Daesh and other terrorist groups.
