Danish-Iraqi relations are foreign relations between Denmark and Iraq. Denmark has an embassy in Baghdad and a trade office in Basra, Iraq has an embassy in Copenhagen.

On March 21, 2003, the Danish Parliament decided to support U.S. military action in Iraq and, in fact, contribute naval assets to the war.

In 2006, the Iraqi Transport Minister Salam al-Malki announced freezing all economic relations with Danish and Norwegian companies in protest against insulting cartoons published in the countries newspapers.[1]

With a total Iraqi population in Denmark numbering around 29,600, there are organizations such as the Iraqi-Danish Culture Days, which is currently organized in the capital of Copenhagen.[2]

Shia cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani condemned the cartoons but also commented about militants who discredit Islam by their acts. Sistani underlined how un-Islamic acts of extremism are used as justification to attack Islam.[3]
