Information / follow up.

Turkish forces arrived in Azerbaijan, to participate in joint military exercises between the two countries, after days of escalation between the Armenian and Azerbaijani armies in the Karabakh region, and the exchange of bombing of military sites.

A ceremony was held to receive the Turkish soldiers at the Umit Bridge at the Sidirik border crossing of the Republic of Nakhchivan, after the Turkish force arrived in Baku with a Turkish Air Force plane.

The ceremony included the playing of the Turkish and Azerbaijani national anthems, after which Turkish soldiers were stationed in the military units in the capital, Baku and Nakhchivan.

On July 29, the Turkish and Azerbaijani armed forces will begin comprehensive military exercises in Azerbaijan, which will last for 13 days.

The exercises will include tests of warplanes readiness in the two countries, and include the regions of Baku, the capital, Nakhchivan, Kanjeh, Kordimir, and Yulakh.

Also, during the maneuvers, the readiness of the forces will be tested on the implementation of military command orders, and the firing of armored vehicles, artillery and mortars "at hypothetical enemy targets."

Simultaneously, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoغلlu said that Armenia had taken advantage of the proliferation of the Coruna virus to launch its latest attacks against Azerbaijani lands.

The Turkish minister, on Tuesday, during a participation in an event on the environment through video conferencing technology, explained that health systems and economies are in a difficult situation due to the Coruna epidemic, and that racist tendencies and discrimination have increased.

And he added: "We can also take advantage of the period of fighting the epidemic for dialogue and peace. The conflict in Afghanistan is an example of this, as we renew our call to all parties to stop hostilities and focus on fighting the epidemic."

He continued, "And at a time when everyone is waiting for the clashes to stop during the epidemic period, and to benefit from them for dialogue and peace, Armenia will act in a way that contradicts this and by taking advantage of the epidemic period through its recent attacks on Azerbaijani lands."

The environment event was also attended by the Azerbaijani Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jihon Pyramov, the Japanese Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Suzuki Kisuke, and the Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, Armida Salsiah Alistahbana.

On July 12, tensions rose again between Azerbaijan and Armenia, and the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense announced that the Armenian army bombed its forces with artillery in the border area "Tuvuz". 25 h has ended

But now they are speaking to him at the highest levels, and they have not hidden their ambitions, which we consider a great threat to the Iraqi state.

He pointed out that "historically, whatever the differences between Turkey and Iran, religious, sectarian and political, are present, strong economic interests remain the grouping of the two parties, so they have no problem in understanding and cooperation, especially With regard to what they call the Kurdish threat because they consider it a threat to their national security. ”

Regarding the Turkish intervention in northern Iraq, Zebari said: "It is the duty of the Iraqi government to have a greater voice in the face of the Turkish expansion."

Pointing out that "the absence of the Arab presence in Iraq made Turkey and Iran control the fate of the country." The leader of the Kurdistan Democratic Party confirmed that "the Arab countries lack the foundations of political and security presence in Iraq, but the time has not passed and there is a possibility to find fertile ground for cooperation through cooperation with the government Mustafa Al-Kazemi and the stability of Iraq is stability for the Arab Gulf states and an international need. ”Hoshyar Zebari said that“ Mustafa Al-Kazemi’s government has an opportunity to carry out reforms of the portfolio that stops loss, waste, corruption and foreign interference in the country. ”

1596037310730.jpeg

 

30th July, 2020

A local official in Duhok governorate reported, on Wednesday, that fires broke out in farms as a result of armed clashes between the Turkish army and PKK fighters in the governorate.

The director of zakho district, Zirvan Moussa, told Shafaq News agency, "Armed clashes erupted between Kurdistan Workers Party and the Turkish army in the vicinity of Shransh village, north of Darkar district".

Turkish forces have penetrated several regions of Kurdistan Region since mid-June, as part of a large-scale military campaign to pursue PKK fighters, which are opposed to Ankara.

Moussa explained, "the clashes took place last night, and resulted in great material damages in more than 20 farms in the area, as well as massive fires in nearby forests".

The Turkish ground incursion was accompanied by heavy artillery shelling, causing great material losses.

The bombing sparked condemnation of Kurdistan Regional Government, which also demanded Kurdistan Workers' fighters to leave the region to avoid tensions.

Baghdad also condemned the Turkish attacks and summoned the Turkish ambassador twice and delivered two strongly worded protest notes, and the federal government deployed border guards at several points in the Duhok governorate on the Turkish border.

A Turkish military plane launched raids on Karbali village in the Manishik district in Zakho district in Dohuk, as part of Turkey's ongoing military operations in the Kurdistan region.

The manager of the Manishik district, Mushtaq Esmat, said, in statements to Kurdish media, that a Turkish plane launched three raids on the Shevky River in Karbali village at eight o'clock this evening, noting that it was not yet known the size of the losses resulting from the bombing, because it was impossible to go to the village Damage preview.

On June 17, Turkey announced the launch of the "Tiger Claw" operation in two racks in northern Iraq , two days after the launch of the "Eagle Claw" operation, as Ankara says that elements of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) launch attacks on the Turkish interior from Iraqi lands.

Turkey on water before requesting it to conclude a new agreement 

847648-a8567c16-e935-4568-a7aa-ad21df85f
Baghdad ( NINA) / The former head of the Bar Association, Ahlam Al-Lami, confirmed that the government needs to review previous agreements with Turkey on water before requesting it to conclude a new agreement.

She said in a statement to the Iraqi National News Agency ( NINA ) that there is an agreement concluded during the era of former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki regarding Iraq’s share of water and entered into force under the era of former Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi. 

Al-Lami added that the current government should review the previous agreement before taking any action on a new agreement, especially as the start of filling the Elisso Dam was carried out according to this agreement.

She stressed the importance of ensuring Iraq’s water share and not linking it to any political repercussions experienced by the relations between Iraq, Turkey and Iran.
