Bulgaria: Iraqi PM Declines Offer of Turkish Help in Battle for Mosul Wikipedia

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has declined Turkey’s offer to participate in the battle against the terrorist group Islamic State in Mosul, reported Reuters.

“I know that Turkey wants to participate and we thank them, but this is something that Iraqis can deal with,” stated al-Abadi after his meeting with US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter in Baghdad on Saturday.

“If we need help, we will ask for it - from Turkey or other countries in the region,” underlined the PM.
