LAS demands from Turkey immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq

32
The Arab League foreign ministers adopted a resolution condemning the entry of Turkish troops into Iraq. The foreign ministers of the LAS countries demanded that Ankara withdraw immediately from Iraqi territory. This became known after a meeting of representatives of the League, which was held in Cairo. RIA News He cites a fragment of a statement by the Deputy Secretary General of the Arab League, Ahmed Bin Helly:


The Arab League condemns Turkey for the introduction of troops into Iraqi territory and demands that the Turkish government immediately withdraw them without any conditions.


For reference: the Arab League consists of 22 member countries, among which are besides Iraq such countries as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Syria, Algeria, Somalia, Yemen, Mauritania, Libya, Tunisia, Qatar, etc.

LAS demands from Turkey immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq


The head of Iraqi diplomacy, Ibrahim al-Jafari, told reporters that the decision was taken unanimously at the council of foreign ministers of the Arab League countries. At the same time, al-Jafari said that Iraq would take all measures to ensure that the Turkish military left Iraqi territory.

Recall that the Turkish contingent is located in the province of Ninawa. According to official Baghdad, it was originally about more than 1 thousand troops and 20 armored vehicles. At the moment, it is reported that about 150 Turkish troops remain in Iraq. Ankara says it will not withdraw the contingent definitively, as it is allegedly involved in the preparation of the Kurdish militia to fight the IS.

It is noteworthy that Turkey “is preparing the Kurdish militia” exclusively on Iraqi territory, while in Turkey itself a bloody military operation against the Kurds in the east of the country has been going on for several months.

    Yes, and besides this URGENT withdrawal of troops from Turkey itself to some neutral territory, that would not have done anything stupid!

      Not only NATO allies turn away from the Turks. Erdogan’s aggressiveness and imperial ambitions even set neighbors against Turkey!

        Where did you find neutral territories in the world now?
        The fact of the matter is that states have already divided the planet Earth into territories, and now we can only talk about the redistribution of territories between countries by military means.
        Where do you think Turkey can withdraw its troops from Iraq, if not to Turkey? Is it only once again upon the fact of "occupying" some other country.
        In addition, the maintenance of troops on a foreign land costs money. Who will pay for this country in which Turkey will have troops?
        Turkey simply has to behave more decently in the world and not bully its neighbors.

        They will say, they will adopt resolutions, and that’s all over. Turks themselves will not leave. They must be driven out of a foreign land.

        And why should they love Turkey?
        More recently, all the neighbors were under the Ottoman’s heel.
        The Ottomans went through the entire Maghreb, grabbed the Arabian Peninsula
        The empire of the Turks was not the smallest that history remembers. And the Turks knew how to oppress the Arabs.

        Tell me, is this forgotten?

            Yes, it is not necessary to take everything literally. You will not argue that the Turks did not conquer many territories and states (including the present Ceyevrope)? And the empire was not only the conquered territories ruled by the Turks, but also the territories under their direct influence.
            But now, while it is reborn, he (the erdohan) will have time to break the ridge.

        Turks in the region have no allies. Moreover, at a subconscious level, the neighbors hate them. In imperial times, the Turks were ruthless to other nations, and this is not forgotten.

      Let them go to Turkey! Otherwise, this indicates the seizure of territory from another state, in particular from Iraq. When did the Turks teach the Kurds military affairs? Is this your own doom? For the Turks, the Kurds are the worst enemies, they have been fighting the Kurds all their lives.

    Behind the Arab League, the United States is looming, following its favorite tactics in politics - supporting both warring parties. Think of the Iran-Iraq conflict of Reagan times when they fought with each other and considered the United States their ally. “It was cynical, immoral, but it worked” ...

      Well, the game of Chess started, now it’s clear why this game went from the east.
      Only the question remains open, no matter how good they play chess, in case of loss, the losing side with assistants, can do check by knight and mat board.
      Like in a famous movie.

    In this region, the hell will break the hell Saudis accept TURKEY in the ranks of the coalition, now the Saudis give the Turks a kick .... the east is a delicate matter ... turned his back ... get your brother a dagger under the shoulder blade ... without body armor friends are unhealthy there .

      I agree. The East is a delicate matter., But one thing is visible here. Iraq and Syria are Arab countries, so everything that Turks do there cannot be liked by Arabs (Saudis, Qatari, etc.), who, in turn, try to leave these countries under their influence.

        Interesting comment, colleague. Given the fact that
        The head of Iraqi diplomacy, Ibrahim al-Jafari, in an interview with reporters, said that the decision at the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Arab League was unanimously adopted.


        events in the Middle East really develop extremely "interesting", even if the Saudis opposed Erdogan.
        We are carefully waiting for the further development of the situation. hi

          Well, Erdogan is generally a little sane political figure. Even his inner circle complains about his unbalanced psyche. In a word - the Sultan who imagines himself!
          Such "sultans" usually have a "good" beginning, the middle is seething, and the end is terrible!

    The LAS has a huge influence in its region, they will find a non-military way to put pressure on Turkey.

    LAS, of course, has political influence in its region, but one must not forget the Turkish (Erdogan) obstinacy. Another thing is interesting. We already wrote above that Turkey became part of the Islamic coalition, in which the countries that are members of the Arab League are present. And then suddenly such a claim to Turkey. I wonder who (is known) and what is behind it? And most importantly, how will it end?

    They adopted the resolution, but how did Erdogan react? Did he blow his nose on her? The whole world sees that it has incurred, climbs and runs into everywhere and at all, already and NATO does not know how to react to the appetites of the "Sultan". Typically, the Arab League first bombed, and only then they show concern and condemnation.
