Iraq Claims To Play Nice With Turkey


On Tuesday Iraq's ambassador to the United Nations appeared to play down a dispute between Baghdad and Ankara over the deployment of Turkish troops in northern Iraq. The ambassador said bilateral talks between the neighboring states to end the row were proceeding favorably. After Russia raised the issue of Turkey's deployment during a closed-door meeting of the United Nations Security Council, Iraqi Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim told reporters, "We are solving it between Baghdad and Ankara bilaterally." adding that Moscow had not consulted with Baghdad before raising the issue in the council, he further commented, "For us, what is helpful is the bilateral discussion going on right now between Baghdad and Ankara, and it's going extremely well."
