Turkey wants to open a new border gate with Iraq in cooperation with the central government in Baghdad after it shuts down the existing gate in response to last week's Kurdish independence referendum, Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım said.
"We have proposed opening the new Ovakoy gate, west of currently used Habur gate, to Baghdad and we are expecting their support. We will be happy to discuss this with (Iraqi Prime Minister Haider) al-Abadi," Yıldırım told reporters, saying the timing of his visit to Baghdad was a work in progress.
Turkish premier to visit Iraq
The Iraqi Embassy in Ankara announced on Friday that Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım would conduct an official visit to Iraq."We are trying to organize the visit of Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım to Baghdad," said Dr. Hisham al-Alawi, the Iraqi Ambassador to Ankara."Kirkuk is part of Iraq, the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has no right to include it. We may use force to take control of border gates. The military drills with Turkey were preparation for this,” he added.US trained 5,000 PKK and Peshmerga terroristsIn case of a possible operation in northern Iraq, Turkish and Iraqi troops prepared by taking part in drills simulating critical deployment measures in hostile areas, in addition to training against enemy attacks and ambushes.Turkey’s military drills were launched three kilometers away from the border in the southeastern Silopi region in the early hours of Sept. 18, a week before the KRG’s non-binding independence referendum.Iraqi soldiers arrived in Turkey on Sept. 23 for joint military exercises due to be carried out the following day in Habur.On Sept. 25, Iraqis in KRG-held areas -- and in several areas disputed between Baghdad and Erbil -- voted on whether to declare independence from Iraq.Turkish FM insists on 'time limit' for KRGErdoğan: All airspace and land borders with KRG to be closedBarzani supports Daesh established by US, Israel
Yıldırım also said he wanted to boost cooperation with central Iraqi government on economy, defence, security and political issues.
The premier added that following the visit to Iran, a mutual agreement regarding northern Iraq was reached, as well as a counterterrorism agreement against the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK). US trained 5,000 PKK and Peshmerga terrorists
The plan to dismantle Turkey, Iraq and Iran with an Israeli puppet state has a long history. The U.S. has been working for an extended period of time for the terror state scenario that emerged with the Kurdistan Regional Government’s (KRG) Sept. 25 referendum. One such example is how the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK) and Peshmerga were taken to a U.S. base on Guam, which North Korea threatened with missiles.Located in the Pacific, Guam hosted 5,000 Peshmerga and PKK terrorists who received special training at the Anderson Military Base. In 1996, the transfer was referred to as the “Operation Pacific Haven.” Terrorists trained in GuamUnder the guise of a rescue operation after Saddam’s attacks, 5,000 Iraqi Kurds were taken to Guam from Incirlik Air Base, located in southern Turkey. They were subjected to intensive training in battle, politics, intelligence, sabotage and were sent back to Iraq in 2003.The organization, which spans from Iraq to the Pacific Ocean, was headed by former French President François Miterand’s wife Danielle Miterand and Zionist Jew Bernard Henry Levy, who is referred to as the modern Lawrence of the Middle East.Turkish FM insists on 'time limit' for KRGFirst group of 2,500 peopleThe first group that was taken to Guam consisted of 2,500 people from Iraq’s north. At first, the Peshmerga and PKK terrorists had “no identity.” Later, their numbers were pushed up to 5,000 by the Mossad and CIA alliance.Following the U.S. occupation of Iraq, 85 percent of the Peshmerga and PKK terrorists returned to Iraq and the rest were positioned in western countries such as France, Germany, Denmark, England, Canada and the U.S. to form Kurdish diaspora and run lobbying activities.Zionism puppetsAmong those who located to the U.S. and European countries were Qubad Talabani (son of Jalal Talabani), Lahor Sheikh Jangi (nephew of Jalal Talabani), Masrour Barzani (son of Masoud Barzani), and Najmeddin Karim (illegitimate governor of Kirkuk).There are also many Peshmerga commanders and top PKK administrators who were trained by the westerners. The militants the U.S. took to Guam in 1996 returned to PKK ranks. Many top terrorist organization seniors were sent from Iraq’s Qandil to Syria’s PYD, and Iran’s PJAK. Names such as Redur Halil, Zuhad Kobani and Hüseyin Koçer, who commanded the PKK-affiliated Democratic Union Party (PYD), which occupied many regions in the north and east with U.S. cooperation in Syria, are also among the terrorists who passed the same training process in 1996.Many top PKK commanders in Sinjar, Qamishli, Afrin and Kobani were also educated in Guam.The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the European Union and the United States. The PKK has been conducting armed violence in the southeastern part of Turkey since 1984. More than 40,000 people, mostly civilians, have been killed in the three-decade long conflict.Top PYD official trained in GuamAbdi Ferhad Şahin, codenamed Mazlum Kobane, who commands the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) terrorist organization produced by the U.S. to legitimize their Syrian occupation, was also trained by Mossad and the CIA in Guam.Şahin posed with top U.S. officials following Turkey’s bombardment of Sinjar and Karachok. He is seen by the Pentagon as the first point of contact in Syria, and is also the figure U.S. Presidential Envoy Brett McGurk communicates with most.Lobby teams dispatched to Europe, militants sent to the PacificFollowing the agreement between Iraq and Iran signed in Algeria in 1975, France, Britain and the U.S. started to send the first groups of Kurds. In this period, 15,000 Kurds were positioned in various cities across the U.S. and Europe.Kurdish youths who were educated through special scholarships are among the leading names of today's Kurdish political movement. France was one of the pioneering countries for the great plan to bring the “promised lands” to Israel through “Kurdish Institutes,” associations and racist lobbies.Peshmerga and PKK terrorists selected by Danielle Miterand and Bernard Henry Levy were sent to the Habur border gate, and the U.S. conducted shipments through the Turkey-Iraq border using Operation Iron Hammer.The Peshmerga and PKK terrorists who were brought to the Turkish border in special vehicles were taken from the Batman highway to the Incirlik Air Base. The militants who were drafted to be trained as administrators in the terrorist organization were then taken to Guam in the Pacific.Iraq PM calls on Peshmerga to operate under his commandErdoğan: All airspace and land borders with KRG to be closedErdoğan: Turkish military will be positioned in IdlibTurkey, Iraq continue joint military drills
Turkish FM insists on 'time limit' for KRG
A time limit should be set up for the northern Iraq’s Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) to reconsider from their “mistake” of holding an illegitimate referendum, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Çavuşoğlu said Thursday.“There must be a time limit,” said Çavuşolğu told reporters in Paris following a meeting with his French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian.He said the KRG had to take necessary initiatives to cancel the result of the Sept. 25 illegitimate referendum in the Kurdish-controlled areas of northern Iraq "within the given time".“If necessary steps are taken within that time, then ok, but if not, then the demands and steps [made by] the Iraqi administration will be important criteria for us," he added.Regarding French President Emmanuel Macron's initiative to mediate between Iraq and the KRG, Çavuşoğlu said Ankara supported all kinds of contributions for a solution to the issue between Baghdad and Erbil. Although, he also said he doubted that a single country could provide it.The Turkish foreign minister recalled that Paris also supported Iraq's borders and territorial integrity.“France stressed that this problem should be resolved within this framework and in accordance with the current Iraqi constitution,” he said, adding that Ankara also saw the issue from a similar perspective.“We have already spoken to the French administration today and we are also telling our other interlocutors that [KRG President Masoud] Barzani still can [correct] he mistake. He put the future of Iraq, especially the future of the Kurds, in danger by ignoring our calls before the referendum, but now he has to listen to this call.”Çavuşoğlu also said the problem should be solved as soon as possible for the stability in the region.On Sept. 25, Iraqis in Kurdish Regional Government (KRG)-held areas -- and in several areas disputed between Baghdad and Erbil -- voted on whether to declare independence from Iraq.According to results announced by the KRG, almost 93 percent of registered voters cast ballots in favor of independence.The illegitimate referendum was heavily criticized by most regional and international actors, many warning that it would distract from Iraq’s ongoing fight against terrorism and further destabilize the already-volatile region
