Iraq: Turkish preconditions for Bayraktar deal

Iraqi Minister of Defense Lt-General Juma Anad Saadoun stated last month (30/8/21) that Iraq is interested in acquiring Turkish Bayraktar TB2 drones, T129 ATAK helicopters, and electronic warfare (EW) systems.

What do these preconditions include?

Is a deal expected to be concluded soon?
