Iraqi PM's Advisor Blames Turkey for Fueling Unrests in Region

Iraqi PM's Advisor Blames Turkey for Fueling Unrests in Region 
TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior advisor to Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki lashed out at Ankara for its interference in the internal affairs of the regional states, and took Turkey responsible for growing unrests in the region.

"The wrong policies of the government of (Turkish Prime Minister) Erdogan and the country's Foreign Minister (Ahmet Davutoglu) are the main cause of unrests in the region," Ali Al-Moussavi told FNA on Sunday.

"With the green light of some powerful countries, Erdogan has started unjustified and unnecessary meddling in the affairs of the regional countries, specially Iraq and Syria since several months ago and that meddling can fuel unrests in the region," Moussavi stated.

He added that Iraq has informed Ankara of its anger at Turkey's policies through Ankara's embassy in Baghdad, and noted, "Their policy is outside the diplomatic norms and is also condemned at the UN."

The remarks by Moussavi came after Davutoglu on Friday expressed deep concerns over the ongoing internal tension in neighboring Iraq and claimed that Maliki appeared to have largely lost the confidence of his people.

As regards Syria, the Turkish minister said President Assad has lost all global support.

Turkey is among the countries that support militants inside Syria. Ankara provides military training for anti-Damascus militants along its borders with Syria.

In recent months, thousands of the Turkish people took to the streets in different cities to protest against their government's interference in Syria.
