Turkey's PM says Iraqi govt has no control over North
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Sunday the central administration of Iraq had no control over north of Iraq, World Bulletin reported.
Speaking at a press conference in Toronto, Erdogan said "that the separatist terrorist organization had taken control of a certain geographical location in north of Iraq."
Either the central administration of Iraq or the regional government in north of Iraq must do what they have to do regarding the terrorist organization, Erdogan stressed.
In reference to a question on the function of the "trilateral mechanism", Erdogan said that the issue had many different dimensions.
There are different dimensions of the matter, including psychological, sociological and security related. The trilateral mechanism works on these dimensions. The central administration has no control over north of Iraq. The trilateral mechanism is discussing the steps to be taken in north of Iraq, Erdogan said.
