Iraq army starts major manoeuvres with Turkish army at the border

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The Iraqi army started “major manoeuvres” with the Turkish army at the border, the Iraqi defence ministry said on Monday.

The two countries are coordinating measures against the autonomous Kurdish region of northern Iraq in retaliation for a non-binding independence referendum organised there on Monday.
