  1. Turkey is planning a crossborder military operation into Iraq against the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) along with the federal Iraqi government, Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu has said, private broadcaster CNN Türk reported on March 8.
    "Even if the Afrin operation has not yet been completed, we have the capacity to carry out both operations simultaneously," Çavuşoğlu said.
    The operation may start after Iraq holds parliamentary elections scheduled for May, Çavuşoğlu was quoted as saying.
    The country's top diplomat also said Turkey’s ongoing operation in the northern Syrian district of Afrin “might be completed by May.”

    Turkey and Iraq's central government in Baghdad will carry out a joint operation against the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK) in northern Iraq, Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said on Thursday.

    Çavuşoğlu's comments came as Turkey pushes ahead with a cross-border military operation against the People’s Protection Units (YPG) in northern Syria's Afrin region.

    The YPG is the armed wing of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), which is the Syrian offshoot of the PKK. The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the European Union and the United States.
