According to him, legislators from Iraq's special parliamentary panels contacted the country's Foreign Ministry after discussing the topic earlier on Thursday.
Muhaibis said that after analyzing the archives on relations between Iraq and Turkey, it turned out that bilateral security treaties haven't existed between the countries since 1946.
"So the Turkish troops in Mosul can be called occupational forces because they entered Iraq without the Iraqi government' s request or the parliament's permission," Muhaibis said.
Earlier on Thursday, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stated that Moscow considers Turkey's move to deploy troops to Iraq a flagrant violation of international law.
Earlier this week, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi gave Turkey 24 hours to withdraw its troops from Iraq, and threatened to approach the UN Security Council to have the matter reviewed. Turkey refused to do so.
