Iraq condemns Turk operation, wants troops out
Iraq's government condemned on Tuesday Turkey's incursion into northern Iraq to fight PKK militants and demanded Ankara withdraw its troops immediately after what it described as a violation of Iraq's sovereignty.

"The cabinet expressed its rejection and condemnation for the Turkish military interference, which is considered a violation of Iraq's sovereignty," the Iraqi government said in a cabinet statement released by spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh.

"The cabinet stresses that unilateral military action is not acceptable and threatens good relations between the two neighbours," it said in the strongest language used by Baghdad since the operation began last Thursday.
