Turkey and Iran Agree to Cooperate Against Kurdish Rebels

Turkey continued to attack the PKK for a second day. The foreign ministers of Turkey and Iran held a joint news conference. They said their two countries would work together to crush the PKK.

“We will work together in a common action plan until we entirely eradicate this threat of terrorism,” said Ahmet Davutoglu, the foreign minister of Turkey.

In the first two days of their assault on the PPK, Turkey killed at least 50 members of that organization. Turkey would later claim that the operation killed at least 270 militants.
