NATO not allowed using Iraq soil against Iran: Iraqi PM

Baghdad, The North Atlantic Alliance (NATO) military bloc is not allowed to use Iraqi territory against Iran, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said.

Speaking in a weekly press conference on Tuesday, he referred to the recent ambush attack against Popular Mobilization Forces in northern Iraq which have claimed the lives of 27 forces, saying investigations are underway.

The attack that happened in Hawija created tensions in Iraq's internal affairs and the Popular Mobilization Forces commanders tend to take revenge.

Elsewhere in his remarks, he referred to re-opening Iraqi Kurdistan Region airports, saying they will remain closed until all commitments are fulfilled.
