Iran condemns assassination of Iraqi researcher in security, strategic affairs

Tehran (ISNA) - Iran's embassy in Baghdad in a statement condemned assassination of Hisham al-Hashemi, an Iraqi researcher in security and strategic affairs.

“There is no doubt that supporters of such terrorist operations aim to undermine security and stability of Iraq in order to sow discord among the Iraqi people and bring back violence, the statement said.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran always supports stability and security of Iraq,” the embassy reiterated.

Al-Hashemi was a leading expert whose opinions were at the center of attention in the Iraqi political and media community.

According to the reports, Hisham al-Hashemi, 47, was shot near his home in the Zeyouneh area of Baghdad and pronounced dead at a hospital.
