Turkey Announces Troop Withdrawal from Iraq after Obama Appeal: Foreign Ministry

Turkey on Saturday declared it would “continue” to pull its troops out of northern Iraq after zionist US President Obama urged his ally President Erdogan to do so in order to de-escalate tensions with Baghdad over the deployment.

“Taking into account the sensitivities on the Iraqi side … Turkey will continue the process it has already begun to withdraw its troops stationed in Mosul province,” the foreign ministry said in a statement.

The Iraqi government earlier this week demanded the “complete withdrawal” of Turkish troops from its territory after Turkey deployed soldiers and tanks to a military camp near the city of Mosul.

Baghdad labelled the deployment an illegal “incursion” but Turkey said it was to protect Turkish trainers working with Iraqi forces battling the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) terrorist group.
