Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim will be traveling to Iraq on an apparent mission to mend fences with the Iraqi leadership, which has been bitterly disapproving of, but unable to stop, Turkish military presence in Iraqi territory.

“The prime minister will be traveling to Iraq on Thursday to start a new era with the Iraqi central government,” Deputy Turkish Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus told a news conference on Monday.

The visit will be aimed at discussing “the fight against terrorism and the future of Iraq,” Kurtulmus added.

“A new peace perspective in Iraq is just around the corner,” he said, without elaborating.

Iraq may be facing a post-Daesh era. Military offensives to purge Iraqi territory of Daesh have severely strained the terrorist group’s resources, particularly in the northern city of Mosul, the last urban area the outfit still controls in Iraq.

Once Daesh is entirely defeated in Iraq, a process that will take more time than Iraqi officials may be prepared to admit, Baghdad will be facing a host of other contentious issues to attend to.
