Yawar told IRNA that 'We never announce (our) military plans,' stressing that the plans for beginning the Mosul operation are near completion.
“We're waiting for the Iraqi Army's forces to get stationed alongside the roads to take part in the operation through Kurdistan region,” he said.
According to the official, a certain amount of coordination still remains to be done between Iraqi army and Peshmerga fighters.
Commenting on the remarks by certain Turkish officials that the Mosul operation will be launched within the next week, he said it is the Iraqi officials who decide on confrontations with the terrorist group of Daesh.
