MUNICH, February 12. /TASS/. Turkey last year dispatched its troops to Iraq without permission from the Iraqi authorities, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi told the Munich Security conference on Friday. This kind of action is impermissible, he said.
"We have no foreign troops or combat units in our territory. There are no Iranians, Saudis, Jordanians or British or US troops," he said. "There are only military servicemen who are prepared to work as instructors."
"Except for Turkey. It has dispatched combat units without consent from the Iraqi government. We believe this is intolerable," Al-Abadi said. "We are neighbors. If you wish to help Iraq, it is up to us to decide in what way you are to help us."
At the end of last December Ankara moved troops into Iraq. Originally 150 troops and two dozen tanks were said to have been redeployed there. Turkey claimed that Baghdad had asked to send in the contingent to help the troops fight against terrorists.
