Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim Jaafari stated that the murder of Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov is not only aggression against Russia, but aggression against all the diplomats in the world.

CAIRO (Sputnik) — The murder of Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov is an aggression against all the diplomats in the world, Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim Jaafari told Sputnik on Wednesday.

"I believe that it’s not only aggression against Russia, but aggression against all the diplomats in the world. Diplomacy is one, no matter what country it serves," Jaafari said, explaining that "diplomacy is an alternative to war, and an attack on any diplomat is a push toward conflict and military solution."
