US military warns Turkey off Iraq raid | July 6, 2007

The US military warned Turkey Tuesday against destabilizing northern Iraq by carrying out a threatened cross-border raid on Kurdish rebels.The US armed forces have a “great relationship with the military of Turkey,” said Brigadier General Perry Wiggins, deputy director for operations of the Pentagon’s Joint Staff.

But he cautioned: “As the secretary of defense (Robert Gates) has said, any disruption up in northern Iraq would not be helpful at this time.”
