Iraq summons Turkish envoy over deadly drone strike

Baghdad: Iraqi officials said on Tuesday they were cancelling a visit by Turkey’s defence minister and summoning the country’s ambassador after a Turkish drone killed two high-ranking Iraqi officers.

The Turkish envoy will be given “a letter of protest with strong words” categorically rejecting aggression from Ankara, Iraq’s foreign ministry said.

Turkey launched an offensive in mid-June in northern Iraq against the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which Ankara regards as a terrorist organisation.
