Iraq decries latest Turkish drone strike in Kurdistan region, vows response after investigation

Baghdad has condemned Turkey for its deadly drone strike in Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdistan region, pledging "necessary steps" in response to the attack.

The Iraqi Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Friday that such actions “represent violation of Iraq’s sovereignty and a threat to the security of ordinary people, several of whom lost their lives and sustained injuries as a result of the attack.”

“This attack undermines the security of Iraq and stability of its people, and requires a unified stance to be confronted,” the statement added.

The ministry also pledged “necessary steps after completion of a thorough investigation into the attack.”
