The EU condemns terrorist attacks in Iraq

EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton has condemned the series of terrorist attacks in several Iraqi provinces that claimed dozens of lives.

The High Representative reiterated her call to the government and political groups of Iraq to launch a comprehensive dialogue to settle political differences, Ashton said in a statement.

According to her, "a government that can demonstrate national unity, representativeness and effectiveness, stands a greater chance in the struggle against ongoing violence.”

The EU High Representative also expressed condolences to families of those killed and wounded.

Earlier on Thursday, a similar statement was made by the Russian Foreign Ministry.
