Germany to continue development support to Iraq

Germany will continue providing development assistance to Iraq and will not withdraw development staff, following the US-led assassination of Iran's top military general, Ghassem Soleimani, and an Iranian reprisal against an American military base in Iraq.

Germany continues to advocate for de-escalation and diplomatic solutions. Refugee assistance and reconstruction of the country are focus areas for Germany's work in the country now.
