Turkey, Iraq Renew Cooperation

By John Lee.

Turkey and Iraq have agreed to closer cooperation in their fight against the Islamic State (ISIS, ISIL, IS).

During Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu’s visit to Baghdad, he and his Iraqi counterpart Haider al-Abadi said they were confident of improving relations between the countries and making them even stronger than before.

"We have a key agreement to exchange information and have full security cooperation," Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi told the news conference.

Iraq’s stability and peace is Turkey’s stability and peace,” Davutoğlu added, before inviting Mr. al-Abadi and his ministers to a joint Cabinet meeting in late December.
