Iraq suspends consulate operations in Iranian city following diplomat arrests Updated: 2019-10-02 07:18:21 KST

Iraq is suspending consulate operations in Iran following the arrest and torture of Iraqi diplomats.
Iraq's foreign ministry said Tuesday that the suspension will be lifted if "Iran apologizes for the attack."
Iranian security forces arrested two Iraqi diplomats during their trip to the Iraqi consulate in Masshad last Saturday.
The diplomats were later released without bailbut Iran has yet to provide an explanation for the arrest.
The arrest of diplomats is unusual as the two countries have established stronger diplomatic and economic ties in recent years.
