Iraq Deplores Turkish Attack On Sulaymaniyah Airport

(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) BAGHDAD, April 8 (KUNA) -- The Iraqi Presidency expressed on Saturday its condemnation of Turkish military operations in Kurdistan region, including a recent attack on Sulaymaniyah International Airport.
"As we condemn these blatant attacks on Iraq and its sovereignty, we affirm that there is no legal justification that authorizes the Turkish forces to continue their approach in terrorizing peaceful civilians under the pretext of the presence of anti-Iraqi forces on Iraqi soil," the presidency said in a statement.
Therefore, it called on the Turkish government to "take responsibility, offer an official apology for these actions, stop these attacks and solve their internal problems by opening outlets for dialogue with the concerned parties".
"In the event of the recurrence of these attacks, there will be a firm stance to prevent their recurrence in the future," the Iraqi presidency warned. (end)
