ISTANBUL: Turkey will not hand over Iraq’s fugitive Vice President Tareq al-Hashemi, who faces a death sentence against him in Baghdad, and he can remain in Turkey as long as he needs to, Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday.

“I'll say it very clearly. We will be willing to host Mr. Hashemi as long as he wants, and we will not hand him over,” Erdogan told a news conference in the capital Ankara.
