BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Tuesday he would take action soon over border areas under Kurdish control, but would regain them without violence.

"We will regain control on border areas without escalation. We will not wait forever, we will take action regarding the border areas," he said at a news conference.
