He added, "This tragedy is only a link in the chain of continuous Turkish aggression against Iraq, as Turkey persisted in its aggression through its air raids, artillery bombardment and ground incursions of its forces deep into Iraqi territory, which lasted nearly ten days, killing civilians for the past ten days. We are not satisfied with condemning the crime and the aforementioned ones, but there must be a national stance to protect the country, its sovereignty, and the lives of its people from the Turkish machine of destruction.”
Al-Amiri called on the government to “close the borders with Turkey immediately and stop the work of Turkish companies in Iraq, and any negligence on the part of the Iraqi government in taking deterrent measures to prevent aggression and protect the Iraqi people from this arrogance will be considered as being considered by them as a partner.” The heinous crime or trying to justify it is an accomplice to the murderous aggressors, and he practices unforgivable treason against his homeland and his people.
