The Iraqi Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki, criticized the recent statements of his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan over impossibility of winning Maliki a third term, reported Iraqi News.
A statement by Maliki’s media office quoted him as saying “Turkey faces confused internal situations where it heads towards a civil war on sectarian and communal backgrounds, therefore its government has to realize this fact and focus on addressing the internal problems.”
“We advise Erdogan to settle the affairs of the Turkish minorities and stop the policy of interfering in the regional problems and crises since it will negatively affect Turkey and its people,” he added.
“We reassure Erdogan that the civil war will never occur in Iraq because it will be confronted by the Iraqi solid and unified society,” Maliki added stressing “There is a good chance in front of Turkey that is based on mutual respect and non-interfering in the internal affairs.”
