Turkish, Iraqi Defense Chiefs Discuss Security Issues

They speak over phone, exchange views on fight against terrorism, says Turkish National Defense Ministry.

Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar on Wednesday spoke over the phone with his Iraqi counterpart Minister Juma Anad.
The two exchanged views on bilateral and regional defense and security issues, according to a statement by the Turkish National Defense Ministry.
"We respect the territorial integrity, borders and sovereignty of all our neighbors, especially Iraq, and no one should doubt this," Akar said.
Akar noted that Turkey's struggle is against terrorism and terrorists, saying it aims to neutralize terrorists who nested in northern Iraq, killed 40,000 people and committed crimes against humanity.
Turkey launched Operations Pence-Simsek and Pence-Yildirim on April 23 in northern Iraq's Metina and Avasin-Basyan regions near its borders.
The PKK terror group often uses bases in northern Iraq just across Turkey's southern border to hide and plot terror attacks in Turkey.
In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and the EU – has been responsible for the deaths of at least 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.
