To ask Her Majesty's Government what information they have about Turkish military actions (1) inside Iraq under Operation Tigris Shield, and (2) in Duhok and Erbil provinces, and plans to attack the Candil Mountains; and whether such actions have been discussed in any international forum.
We have been closely following Turkey’s Operation Tigris Shield, announced in March in order to combat Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) fighters in the Turkey-Iraq border regions. The PKK remains a significant threat to Turkey and is an internationally proscribed terrorist organisation. We have not discussed the current operation in international fora, but will continue to engage with the Turkish Government on their operations as appropriate.
