Iraq is yet to appoint a new ambassador to the United Kingdom. However, following an incident on 8 April 2011 at Camp Ashraf, I released a statement calling on the Government of Iraq to cease violent operations in Camp Ashraf immediately.

Our embassy officials, including our ambassador in Baghdad, have raised concerns about the incident with the Iraqi President, Prime Minister, Foreign Minister and Minister of Human Rights. We have made it clear to the Iraqi authorities that we deplore any loss of life and have urged them to set up an independent investigation into the incident.
