ANKARA 

Turkey will send medical aid to Iraqi and Turkmen people, presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said on Sunday.

The aid will be dispatched upon the instructions of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Thanking Turkey on Twitter, Iraqi Turkmen Front head Ersat Salihi said this will reduce coronavirus cases in the country.

“Turkey always stands with its Turkmen and Iraqi brothers,” Kalin responded to Salihi’s post.

Iraq has so far reported more than 43,000 virus cases and 1,660 deaths.
