British Foreign Minister Dominique Labu spoke to US Secretary of state pompeio on Friday and issued a statement on the incident, saying: the British government recognizes that Sulaimani is a threat to the United States, but further conflict is not good for everyone.
Jeremy cobin, leader of the British opposition Labor Party, opposed the assassination of the United States. He said: all countries and relevant parties in the Middle East should avoid the escalation of tensions. The escalation of conflicts in this region will only lead Iraq to greater suffering 17 years after the invasion of the United States.
At present, there are more than 400 British troops in Iraq. Their main responsibility is to train Iraqi army and police. After the assassination, the British government issued a warning to all British citizens to avoid participating in public activities in the area.
