Pentagon calls on Iran to respect Iraq's sovereignty


The Pentagon called on Iran to respect the sovereignty of Iraq and other countries in the region.


Spokesman for the Pentagon Sean Robertson commented on the news that Iran was supplying the Iranian Militia in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) with missiles, saying: "If confirmed, this would be a violation of UN Security Council Resolution 2231, which prohibits it from developing ballistic missiles."


He pointed out that these activities strengthen the conviction of the U.S. that the Iranian regime seeks to extend its influence throughout the Middle East region, accusing Iran and Hezbollah of prolonging conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.
