MOSCOW (Sputnik) Iraq’s People’s Mobilization will take appropriate measures against Turkish forces if Ankara does not pull its troops out of the country by the deadline set out by the government, the organization’s press secretary told Sputnik on Tuesday.

“The People’s Mobilization will take appropriate measures against Turkish forces if they refuse to leave [Iraqi territory] by the deadline set by the country’s government. We have no need to announce these measures,” Karim an-Nouri said.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi said the deployment of Turkish servicemen on Iraqi territory had been carried out without the consent and knowledge of the Iraqi authorities and represented a violation of sovereignty and a breach of the principles of good neighborliness.

Abadi on Monday gave Turkey 24 hours to withdraw its troops from Iraq to avoid the matter being reviewed by the UN Security Council. Turkey has refused to do so.
