Russian lawmakers again criticize US invasion of Iraq

October 16, 2007 10:37

Russia's lower house of parliament on Tuesday called on Turkey to not launch a cross-border offensive against Kurdish rebels in northern Iraq, and said the US invasion of Iraq was a "gross violation of international law." In a resolution, lawmakers in the State Duma - which is dominated by the Kremlin-backed party United Russia - said the 2003 invasion had "inflicted irreparable damage to civil society" in Iraq. "In the absence of convincing evidence of Iraq's production, storage or use of prohibited forms of weapons, this step by the United States and its allies ... has become a gross violation of international law," the resolution said.
