BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: A National Alliance MP expressed astonishment on Turkish premier's statements on the situation in Iraq, regarding them as "avowed interference in Iraqi internal affairs".
MP Ali al-Shalah told Aswat al-Iraq that "Iraq is not an Ottoman province, and never will be".
"Although Erdogan may have behaved this way with some Arab countries during the Arab Spring, it is not applicable in Iraq", he added.
Shalah told Premier Erdogan to "attend the Turkish internal affairs, where some Turkish quarters suffer racist violations".
Earlier, Premier Erdogan warned against civil and sectarian war in Iraq.
