    The Iraqi government has denounced the outlawed PKK organization's operations on the border area near Turkey, the AFP reported on Saturday.

    Government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh says the activity "poses a serious threat to the border areas and to the joint security of Iraq and Turkey," AFP reported.

     

    He also has called on the Turkish government "to deal with this criminal act wisely and to show restraint".

     

    Saturday’s statement was the first comment from the Iraqi government on the recent increase in tensions between Turkey and outlawed PKK separatists.

     

    Fifteen Turkish soldiers were killed and 20 were injured, while 23 PKK separatists died in fighting on Friday, the Turkish General Staff said on Saturday.
