BAGHDAD, (SANA) – The US Embassy in Baghdad on Tuesday warned that Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations affiliated with it are attempting to transport funds and gunmen to all countries in the region, including Syria and Iraq.
A statement issued by the Embassy said that US Department of Treasury Deputy Secretary David Cohen discussed with Iraqi officials means of coordinating with the Iraqi government to curb the flow of funding to terrorism in the region, including Syria and Iraq, particularly since Al Qaeda and its affiliates are attempting to transport funds and gunmen to all parts of the region.
These warning contradict the US support of armed terrorist groups in Syria with the help of regional countries, primarily Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
