Cicek criticizes lack of international cooperation in anti-PLL fight
Deputy Prime Minister Cemil Cicek said yesterday that Turkey shared intelligence regarding terrorist organizations with relevant countries. Replying to questions of reporters on death of Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, State Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Cemil Cicek said that however Turkey could not get a similar cooperation from other countries in its fight against terrorist organization PKK or other terrorist organizations. "There is no sound and resolute international cooperation in combating terrorism. Turkey has conducted its fight against terrorist organization on its own. We feel sad over it," he said. Recalling that the United States designated some leaders of terrorist organization PKK as Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers, Cicek said that some of them were in the north of Iraq and the others were in Europe. "No concrete development has been reached on the matter in our talks with European officials," he said.
