US, Turkey discuss ridding Iraq of Kurd militants

ANKARA (Reuters)

The United States and Turkey are discussing ways to get rid of Kurdish militants holed up in northern Iraq as the two NATO allies try to end a diplomatic crisis over Turkey's role in the troubled region.

U.S. ambassador to Turkey Robert Pearson said on Saturday a visit to Ankara by Washington's top soldiers in Iraq and Europe had bolstered their strong military ties which were severely shaken by the arrest of 11 Turkish soldiers in northern Iraq early this month.

''The two (generals) discussed with the General Staff further information about a coordinated approach to eliminating the PKK/ KADEK in northern Iraq,'' Pearson told reporters in Ankara after the departure of Central Command chief General John Abizaid. ---
