US 'strongly' denounces strike on its embassy in Baghdad

United States Department of State "strongly condemned" on Friday the recent attack on the country's embassy in Baghdad, Iraq.

"The many Iran-aligned militias that operate freely in Iraq threaten the security and stability of Iraq, our personnel, and our partners in the region," the department wrote in a statement.

It further called on the Iraqi Security Forces to immediately conduct an investigation, detain those responsible for the strike, and "bring them to justice." Earlier, US National Security Council (NSC) Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby told reporters that Washington is ready to protect itself.
