Member of the European Parliament Marina Albiol said that invasion in Iraq in 2003 violated international law, being unauthorized by the UN Security Council.

Chilcot report on the UK role in the 2003 Iraq War proves US then-President George Bush, UK past Prime Minister Tony Blair and Spain's former leader Jose Maria Anzar were lying about motives of invasion, member of the European Parliament Marina Albiol told on Wednesday.

"[The report] proves that Bush, Blair and Aznar who orchestrated aggression lied about the motives of invasion," Albiol said.

She added that invasion in Iraq violated international law, being unauthorized by the UN Security Council.

Earlier in the day, the United Kingdom recognized that the invasion in Iraq was unjustified.

The UK government released a long-awaited report by Sir John Chilcot devoted to the UK role in the 2003 Iraq War. The inquiry came to the conclusion that the UK government under then-Prime Minister Tony Blair's leadership made a mistake by invading Iraq.

According to the report, the decision to join the war was taken on the basis of flawed intelligence data and assessments.
