Motion text

That this House totally condems the incursion into northern Iraq by the Turkish army; notes the tragic loss of life and destruction of property together with the displacement of Iraqi civilians; further notes that the Turkish Kurds who were refugees in the Atrush camp have now been forced to seek the protection of the Baghdad regime; is concerned at the destabilising effect of Turkish forces in the region; believes that the repeated incursions into northern Iraq by the Turkish army go far beyond any legitimate security interest of the Turkish state; and calls upon the Turkish government to withdraw its forces with immediate effect and respect the international borders between the two states.
