Moscow strongly condemns the latest flare-up of violence in Iraq,
Moscow strongly condemns the latest flare-up of violence in Iraq, a Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Thursday.

Over 100 people have been killed in the last two weeks in a series of bomb and mortar attacks throughout Iraq.

"Moscow resolutely denounces any manifestations of terrorism, whatever motives the masterminds and organizers of these crimes may invoke to justify them," Mikhail Kamynin said.

He also noted that the latest eruption of violence coincided with the fifth anniversary of the U.S. invasion of the country.

On the eve of the anniversary, U.S President George Bush hailed the decision to invade, also saying that a recent surge in U.S. forces serving in Iraq had, "opened the door to a major strategic victory in the broader war on terror."

Kamynin also said the Iraqi people possessed the ability to "prevent a full-blown national catastrophe and ensure peace, stability and order in their country" without outside interference.

Iraq has been plagued by violence since the formal end of the U.S.-led invasion of the Middle East state in 2003.
