Russia condemns US raid on Iranian office in Iraq
Saturday, January 13, 2007
Moscow - Russia's foreign ministry said on Friday a raid by U.S. troops on an Iranian government office in northern Iraq was unacceptable and a violation of international rules.
It is absolutely unacceptable for troops to storm the consular offices of a foreign state on the territory of another state, the ministry said in a statement posted on its Web site www.mid.ru.
This is a flagrant violation of the Vienna convention on consular relations. It is also not clear how this fits in with American statements that Washington respects the sovereignty of Iraq, it said. zaman.com
