Iraqi Prime Minister Warns Against NATO Fomenting War In Syria

NATO should not interfere in Syria on pretext of defending Turkey – Iraqi PM

MOSCOW: NATO should not interfere in the Syrian conflict under the pretext of defending Turkey, as nothing threatens Turkey itself, Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki said.

“All these stories about Syrian planes dropping bombs on Turkish territory are really exaggerating things, even if something of the sort did happen,” al-Maliki said in an interview with Interfax.

“It would be wrong to foment war over this and involve an entire organization such as NATO for the sake of defending Turkey. Nothing is threatening Turkey,” he said.

Iraq’s Maliki in Moscow, with Syria top of the agenda

Baghdad: Marking the first official visit in more than three years, Iraqi premier Nouri al-Maliki is visiting Russia upon president Vladimir Putin’s direct invitation.

As well as seeking to intensify political, economic and military relations, the two heads of government will be addressing the Syrian escalation. Both countries have been accused by members of the international community [sic] of backing the Assad regime. The Iraqi premier leads a high-level government delegation, including the foreign, defence, oil and trade ministers as well as the chairman of the state agency for foreign investments.
