The Senior Undersecretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Nizar Al-Khairallah, summoned the Chargé d'Affairs to the Turkish Embassy in Baghdad, Koglu Calfat, on Monday, 5/3/2021, at the Ministry's building.
Calfat received a protest note in which the Iraqi government expressed its strong dissatisfaction and condemnation of the Turkish Defense Minister Khulousi's presence on Iraqi territory Without coordination or prior approval from the competent authorities, and with his meeting with Turkish forces that are present in the territories illegally, as well as their condemnation of the statements of the Turkish Minister of the Interior regarding Turkey's intention to establish a permanent military base in northern Iraq.
Al-Wakeel affirmed that the Iraqi government categorically rejects the continuing violations of Iraqi sovereignty and the sanctity of Iraqi lands and airspace by the Turkish military forces, and that continuing with such an approach is not consistent with friendly relations, good neighborliness, and relevant international laws and norms. Relying on unilateral military solutions cannot be the effective way to resolve common security challenges.
