Russia is firm in its decision that Turkey has no place on the Syrian ground. Russia warned Turkey to withdraw their troops from Iraq.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has denounced the presence of Turkish soldiers on Iraqi soil as “unacceptable,” calling on Ankara to pull out from the Arab country.
“We demand that Turkey withdraw its troops from the Iraqi territory where they are located to strengthen the sovereignty of Iraq,” Russia’s RIA news agency quoted Lavrov as saying on Tuesday.
Last December, Turkey deployed some 150 soldiers, equipped with heavy weapons and backed by 20 to 25 tanks, to the outskirts of Mosul, the capital of Iraq’s northern Nineveh Province.
Ankara claimed the deployment was part of a mission to train and equip Iraqi Kurdish Peshmerga forces in the fight against Daesh terrorists, but Baghdad denounced the unauthorized move as a violation of Iraq’s national sovereignty.
