Turkey ready to 'take measures' in northern Iraq

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim says Turkey is ready to "take measures" in northern Iraq because Ankara is not satisfied with promises from the United States and Baghdad about the role of Kurdish militants and Shi'ite militia fighters in the battle for Mosul, 

Yildirim said Turkey's military has "made every preparation to take our measures because the promises given by the United States and Iraq about the PKK and Shi'ite militias not being part of operations has not satisfied us yet."

"Turkey can never remain idle against massacres, potential refugee waves, and clashes along its border, and it will take action if necessary," he added, RadioFreeEurope/RadioLiberty reports.
