Baghdad City Council has approved an embargo on Turkish exports to Iraq in retaliation for the deployment of Turkish troops in Mosul's Bashiqa region in routine training exercises on December 5 as a part of the fight against Daesh.
The ban covers any future contracts with Turkish companies, according to Turkish NTV channel.
Baghdad City Council also took a decision to boycott the Turkish commodities due to the 'violation of the sovereignty of Iraq.'
Half of Iraq's total imports are from Turkey.
Turkish troops reached Mosul's Bashiqa area to train Iraqi soldiers as a part of the fight against Daesh.
However, Iraq reacted to Turkey strongly over the deployment of Turkish troops in Mosul, and the country has urged Turkey to withdraw its forces from Bashiqa.
