Iraqi PM: Turkish military presence in Iraq could spark regional war


PUBLISHED Wed, October 05, 2016 - 10:54am EDT


As each summoned the other's ambassador in a growing row, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has warned Turkey that it risks triggering a regional war by keeping troops in Iraq. The Syrian civil war and the rise of the Islamic State militant group have broadly strained relations between the two regional powers already.

Last week Turkey's parliament voted to extend its military presence in Iraq for a further year in order to take on what it called "terrorist organizations." The reference likely included Kurdish rebels as well as Islamic State. On Tuesday night, Iraq's parliament responded by condemning the vote and calling for Turkey to pull its estimated 2,000 troops out of areas across northern Iraq.
