  • Statement
08 January 2020

Following the missile attacks carried out by Iran against military sites in Iraq today, I have spoken to our charge d’affaires/acting head of mission in Baghdad. As advised earlier, our DFAT team is safe. I am assured they are observing strict security guidelines as circumstances dictate.

As Foreign Minister, I place the highest priority on ensuring that our diplomats, and those from other agencies with whom we work, are able to carry out their essential work representing our nation as safely as possible. We will continue to monitor the situation closely.
