Turkey's parliament will debate allowing foreign military forces to use Turkish bases for cross-border operations against Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq, according to a government proposal submitted late on Tuesday.

"The cabinet of ministers has decided ... to ask permission from parliament ... to send the Turkish Armed Forces if necessary to foreign countries for cross-border operations and interventions, and to position foreign militaries in Turkey for the same purposes," the proposal said.

Parliament is expected to debate the proposal on Thursday, with the ruling AK Party's strong majority meaning it is likely to be approved.
