In a press conference on Saturday, the Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar Al-Abadi has renewed the call for the Turkish regime to withdraw their troops from northern Iraq.

The Turkish military is currently deployed around the provincial capital of the Nineveh Governorate (Mosul), where they have allegedly begun training Iraqi civilians to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

Haidar Al-Abadi issued a stern warning to the Turkish regime, demanding they pull out their forces immediately:

This is a frank invitation to Turkey, our neighbor, to pull out its forces from Iraq.”

Abadi further added:

We will deploy every effort permitted by our rights and international law to make them leave.”

Turkey deployed nearly 150 soldiers to Iraq in December 2015 – most were deployed to the Bashiqa base, where it is allegedly training an Iraqi militia force to fight ISIS, citing “heightened security risks.”
