I utterly condemn the bomb attacks that have taken place across Iraq over the past few days. I offer my deepest condolences to the families of those who lost their lives.
My thoughts are with them and with the many who have been injured at this terrible time.

We will continue to support the government of Iraq in its efforts to defeat terrorism, and to provide security for all Iraqis.
