Bashiqa camp crisis. Erdogan, whose soldiers remain in Iraqi soil, rejects moving them and tells Iraq PM to ‘know his limits’

Backed by Putin, Turkey seems to have started a new crisis that will weaken relations with US. I am not sure too much reliance on Russia is a good thing.

Erdogan tells Iraq PM to ‘know his limits’, says will not get orders on Bashiqa camp

ANKARA (Reuters) – Turkish President Erdogan told Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to “know his limits” on Tuesday, and said the Turkish army would not take orders from Iraq on the Bashiqa camp.

“Iraq had certain requests from us regarding Bashiqa, and now they are telling us to leave, but the Turkish army has not lost so much standing as to take orders from you,” Erdogan told a meeting of Islamic leaders in Istanbul
