Killing of Algerian Diplomats to Iraq Ali Belaroussi and Assendine Belkadi

The United States condemns the brutal murders of Algerian Envoy Ali Belaroussi and Assedine Belkadi, the Embassy’s diplomatic attaché.

We express our thoughts and prayers to their families and colleagues as well as to the government and people of Algeria.
Such attacks will not deter us from our commitment to assist the Iraqi people in their transition towards a peaceful and prosperous Iraq.

We will continue to work with the Iraqi government and Iraqi security officials to bring those responsible to justice and to eliminate the network behind them.
