US Declares PKK "a Common Enemy"

World | November 2, 2007, Friday // 00:00

The US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, has said Turkey and the United States share a common enemy in the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), BBC reported.

Rice said the fight against the Kurdish separatist rebels would require persistence and commitment, after talks with the Turkish government in Ankara.

The meeting was aimed at averting major military operations by Turkey against PKK fighters based in northern Iraq.

Turkey has threatened to send in troops if it does not see any concrete action.

Nearly 50 Turkish soldiers have died in clashes with Kurdish fighters in the last month and the government is under huge public pressure to respond with force.
