    BAGHDAD,— Iraqi members of the Council of Representatives called on the Iraqi government to dismiss the Turkish ambassador to Baghdad as tensions between both countries hit a high after the Turkish Parliament extended military actions in Iraq and Syria.
    Iraqi lawmakers Zainab Arif Basri and Rihab al-Abouda released separate statements on Tuesday after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to “[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]” on Tuesday.
    “Erdogan needs to know the limits of diplomatic methods while speaking,” Basri said. “Erdogan must know Iraq is not an Ottoman province while speaking with the Iraqi Prime Minister.”

    Basri urged the Iraqi government to decrease diplomatic relations with Turkey.
    The lawmakers also urged the United Nations and the U.N. Security Council to speed up a meeting which Iraq has called for to discuss Turkish troops inside Iraq. “Turkish troops must leave Iraqi territory very soon,” Basri said.
    Lawmaker Abouda said Erdogan’s comments confirm a desire to escalate Turkish relations with Iraq and urged the Iraqi government to boycott Turkish products.
    The lawmakers’ speeches came after Erdogan said the Turkish army would not take orders from Iraq on the Bashiqa camp.
    “You are not my counterpart. You are not at my level. You are not at my quality. To yell from Iraq is not important for us. We will go our own way,” said Erdogan, referring to Abadi.
    On October 4 the Iraqi parliament, in a majority vote, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] the extension of the mandate of Turkish troops in Iraq and called for a review of relations with Turkey.

    On October 6, Iraq has [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council to discuss Turkey’s military presence on its soil, state television said on Thursday, as a dispute with Ankara over the troops escalated.
    There are 800 Turkish troops deployed in the Mosul and Shaqlawa regions, the move that sparked a crisis between Ankara and Baghdad. Turkey sent a contingent of an additional 150 forces and 25 tanks in December 2015 to bolster its military presence in the Bashiqa camp, an area that has seen recent fighting.
    Iraqi leaders said in December 2015 that hundreds of new Turkish troops had arrived without their knowledge or approval, calling it a violation of its sovereignty.
    The Turkish troops are still present in Nineveh province, based at Camp Bashiq, 70 kilometres west of Iraqi Kurdistan capital of Erbil.
