Turkish troops to stay in Iraq despite Baghdad's objections: PM

Turkey said Thursday that its troops will remain in Iraq despite Baghdad’s growing anger ahead of a planned operation to retake the Iraqi city of Mosul from Islamic State group jihadists. Baghdad has accused Ankara of risking a regional war by keeping its forces inside Iraq and called for an emergency session of the UN Security Council to discuss the dispute, which has complicated plans for the ambitious American-backed Mosul operation. “No matter what the Iraqi government in Baghdad says, a Turkish presence will remain there to fight against Daesh (IS), and to avoid any forceful change of the demographic composition in the region,” Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said in televised comments.
