2017/09/24 | 11:18

(Iraq Now News)- Turkey‘s parliament has approved the extension of a mandate that allows the deployment of troops in Iraq and Syria if faced with national security threats.

The move on Saturday came two days before an independence referendum in Iraq‘s semi-autonomous Kurdish region - a vote denounced by Ankara as a "mistake" and a threat to its security and regional stability.

The motion was backed by members of parliament (MPs) from the ruling Justice and Development Party, as well as the main opposition Republican People‘s Party (CHP) and Nationalist Movement Party.

MPs from the People‘s Democratic Party (HDP) voted against it.
