Long-Term Occupation of Iraq : Iraq's Abadi calls for Turkish forces' withdrawal

Iraq's prime minister says relations with northern neighbour Turkey could "not move forward one step" without a withdrawal of Turkish forces from a camp in northern Iraq.

Iraq's state television quoted Haider al-Abadi as making the comments on Tuesday, referring to Turkish forces stationed at Bashiqa camp near Mosul from before the start of an offensive against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group.

Speaking in November, Fikri Isik, Turkey's defence minister, said his country's military involvement was part of its preparation for "important developments in the region".
