Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Cemil Cicek said Sunday that it is the responsibility of U.S. troops in Iraq to crack down on Kurdish separatist rebels that have been attacking Turkey, but "the United States has not carried out measures that satisfy us." Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, said "we are doing things, but I'm not going to talk about them."
Fighters in the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, have killed at least 30 Turkish soldiers in two ambushes, the boldest attacks in years. Turkey's parliament has authorized a military move against PKK forces based in Iraq but has not launched an offensive.
