Egypt says Turkish and Iranian military operations in Iraq contravene international conventions

Turkish air strikes in Iraq Against Kurdistan Workers Party
Egypt on Thursday condemned the “Turkish and Iranian military interventions” in northern Iraq, says their activities represent “a continuation of the series of repeated violations against brotherly Iraq.

According to a statement issued by Foreign Ministry, Egypt considered that these “interventions and hostilities” represent “a continuation of the series of repeated violations against brotherly Iraq, in violation of all international conventions and covenants that provide for respect for the sovereignty of states and the adoption of principles of good neighborliness.”

The stance by Egypt came against the background of Turkey launching a new military operation against the “Kurdistan Workers Party” in northern Iraq, in a move that Baghdad protested.

The statement stressed, “Egypt totally rejects any interference affecting the sovereignty of any of the brotherly Arab countries, taking into account the consequences of those actions in deepening the instability in the region.”

“Egypt calls on all parties to respect the sovereignty of Iraq, and to distance it from any international or regional conflicts that prevent the realization of the aspirations of the brotherly government and people of Iraq in stability and development.”
