NO FOREIGN MILITARY IN IRAQ / STATEMENT BY IRAQI GOVERNMENT
“The government has rejected the presence of any foreign military base or force on Iraqi soil, or the entrance of foreign forces to Iraq under the pretext of pursuing rebels. Government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said that the Council of Ministers has decided during its regular session to issue a recommendation to the parliament to either cancel or decline to extend any agreement that was previously signed with any foreign state in this regard.
Al-Dabbagh added that the cabinet condemned the Turkish parliament’s draft resolution extending the permission of Turkish’ forces to cross Iraqi borders in pursuit of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, PKK, noting that the resolution constitutes a violation of Iraq’s sovereignty and security.
