Dr. Meshaal bin Fahm Al-Salami, Speaker of the Arab Parliament, condemned today, Wednesday, the Turkish aggression on Iraq, affirming its solidarity with Baghdad, and also calling on the UN Security Council to take urgent action to stop these attacks.
Turkey bombed the Sidakan area in the Iraqi governorate of Erbil with a drone, which led to the death and injury of a number of Iraqi border guards.
The President of the Arab Parliament stressed that “these blatant hostilities and repeated Turkish military breaches are a grave encroachment on Iraq, a flagrant violation of the United Nations Charter, international law and international norms, a clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions, and a lack of respect for good-neighborly relations.”
He affirmed the Arab Parliament’s readiness to work with the Iraqi Parliament to mobilize regional and international support to stop the repeated Turkish attacks.
the Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced the cancellation of the visit of Turkish Defense Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, which was scheduled for Thursday, and the summoning of Ankara's ambassador there, in protest of the Turkish attacks.
Earlier, the Iraqi army demanded that Turkey clarify the circumstances of the "crime" of targeting its members and hold those involved accountable.
