Sunni el­e­ments should join the Iraqi troops in the battle to lib­er­ate Mo­sul

The Kurdish Globe - - SPORTS NEWS -

Barzani re­marks that Sunni el­e­ments should join if there is a need for many more ground troops to lib­er­ate Mo­sul.

Over a ques­tion what is their ex­pec­ta­tion from Tur- key, Barzani an­swered that "Turkey has to be in­volved in the lib­er­a­tion of Mo­sul. They don’t have to send ground troops. But if there is a need for ground troops to take part in co­or­di­na­tion with the Iraqi gov­ern­ment, they ought to send them with­out hes­i­ta­tion."

As an an­swer to the ques­tion "will they?" Barzani said "I don’t know, but in my view they should. I have told the Prime Min­is­ter [Davu­to­glu] this. Not specif­i­cally that they should send ground troops but that they should help the Sunni el­e­ments in the Iraqi army to lib­er­ate Mo­sul."
