KUWAIT CITY, Jan. 2 (Xinhua) -- Kuwait strongly condemned the recent attempt to storm the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, Iraq, Kuwait's Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.
The action is a clear violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations as well as a breach of international laws and norms, the ministry said in a statement.
The incident put the embassy's staff at risk, the statement said, while calling on all Iraqi parties to exercise self-control.
Hundreds of protesters, participating in mourning for the pro-Iran Hashd Shaabi members killed by earlier U.S. airstrikes in Iraq, stormed the U.S. embassy in Baghdad's Green Zone on Tuesday. The protesters withdrew from the compound on Wednesday following a call by the Iraqi government.
