ANKARA, Aug 23: Turkey will send 10,000 troops to Iraq if the government decides to help the US-led coalition to restore stability there, Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul said in an interview published on Saturday.

"We have not made a decision yet, but if we decide to send troops, their number would be about 10,000," the minister told the tabloid Star newspaper.

NationalTurkey, not wanting to be the sole Muslim country that is sending troops to Iraq, is trying to win over Pakistan
ANKARA (Turkishnewsline) - Ankara is trying to decide whether to assist United States in Iraq by sending thousands of Turkish troops there. One of the worries for Turkey is to be seen as the sole Muslim majority country contributing to the international force.

US is not inclined to accept a force from Islamic Conference Organization countries, because there is a Arab majority. Meanwhile Turkey is trying to win over Pakistan.
