BAGHDAD, IRAQ (1:05 P.M.) – Iraqi Prime Minister, Haider Al-‘Abadi, issued a statement through his spokesperson on Wednesday, calling the remarks made by the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, about the upcoming offensive in Mosul “irresponsible.”

“We have come to the belief that Turkey is not keen on resolving any issues or withdrawing its troops from Iraqi territory,” the Iraqi PM’s Spokesperson, Saad Al-Hadithi, stated on Wednesday.

“Turkey does not respect the mutual interests of their country and Iraq, and this could lead to a security threat in Kurdistan, Iraq and the wider region in general,” Hadithi explained on Wednesday.

Unlike the other countries participating in the upcoming Mosul offensive, Turkey was not granted permission to partake in this military operation, let along enter Iraq.

Abadi’s firm response comes just 24 hours after Erdogan asserted that he will not take instructions from Iraq, further adding that the Iraqi PM should know his place.

“You are not my interlocutor, you are not at my level, you are not my equivalent, you are not of the same quality as me,””Erdogan said, addressing Abadi’s criticism of the Turkish military presence on Iraq’s territory.
