/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Turkey will not launch a large-scale operation in
Northern Iraq, Director of the Institute of Oriental Studies at the
RA Academy of Sciences, Dr Ruben Safrastyan told a news conference
July 27. There are several political and economic reasons for it,
according to him.
"The commodity turnover between Turkey and Iraq makes $2,7
billion. Many deputies of the new parliament are of Kurdish origin,"
"Ankara will probably increase pressure on Baghdad and deploy troops
at the border but it will not launch a large-scale operation. Turkey
is a state with army, power, science and policy. However, the most
horrifying thing is that this state is connected to criminals whose
aim is to preserve Turkey as in Ataturk’s time," Dr Safrastyan said
adding that Agos editor Hrant Dink fell victim to this union, IA
