DOHA - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday that a complaint lodged by Iraq's government to the UN Security Council about the presence of Turkish forces in the country was not an honest step.

"They can resort to the UN Security Council, that is their natural right, but this is not an honest step," Erdogan said in an interview with Al Jazeera. Baghdad wants the Security Council to order Turkey to withdraw its troops from a camp near the Islamic State-held city of Mosul
