Iraqi PM denies giving support for Turkish anti-PKK operation in Qandil

WAAR-DUHOK:

 

There is no understanding with Turkey about the launch of military operations in the Qandil Mountains; these statements are only electoral propaganda, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Tuesday.

“Iraq’s sovereignty is a red-line, and there is no discussion with the Turkish side on this issue,” Abadi said of ongoing Turkish air raids against the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) along the Kurdistan Region’s border with Turkey.

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday said an operation against the PKK has begun in Qandil on the Iraq-Iran border as well as the Yezidi-Kurdish region of Sinjar (Shingal), which is under the control of Iraqi forces.
