The Foreign Ministry expresses its deep regret at the unfortunate incident at the Brazilian National Museum in Rio de Janeiro, which has resulted in the loss of civilization in the world.
Iraq is deeply aware of the magnitude of this tragedy and its loss of part of its cultural heritage at the hands of Daesh terrorist gangs, and of what the museum represents to the memory of the Brazilian people as the embodiment of a long history of successive civilizations.
