The Security and Defense Committee in the House of Representatives denied the existence of an agreement signed after 2003 that allows the Turkish side to carry out military operations inside Iraqi territory.
Committee member Jawad al-Bolani said, "The Turkish side claims in the bombing operations that it has an agreement with the Iraqi government that allows it to carry out armed activities inside Iraq, sometimes they claim that it dates back to the eighties of the last century, and others say it was signed after the change of the previous regime."
Al-Bolani added, "The truth of the matter is that Iraq did not conclude security agreements after 2003 that would allow the Turks to enter Iraqi territory."
Al-Bolani stressed, "Iraq did not give a green light for the entry of Turkish forces into its territory, and no agreement was signed after 2003."
