Iraq's foreign minister said Wednesday the government could resort to military action if it is forced to defend itself from what it calls an intrusion of Turkish forces into part of its northern territory.Turkey said it had deployed a force protection unit earlier this month to the area, citing heightened security risks near a camp where its troops were training an Iraqi militia to fight Daesh (ISIS) insurgents. Davutoglu also congratulated Abadi after Iraqi forces retook the center of the city of Ramadi this week, a victory that could help vindicate the Iraqi leader's strategy for rebuilding the military after stunning defeats.
