Iraq's Moscow embassy offers to help evacuate Iraqis from Belarus
The Iraqi embassy in Moscow said on Thursday it was ready to help evacuate any Iraqi nationals who wanted to return home from Belarus, where large numbers of Middle Eastern migrants have been trying to cross into Poland.
Countries bordering Belarus on Thursday warned the migrant crisis on the European Union's eastern borders could escalate into a military confrontation while Ukraine said it would deploy thousands more troops to reinforce its frontier. (Writing by Mark Trevelyan Editing by Andrew Osborn)
