Iraq's interior minister arrived in Turkey on Tuesday to discuss Turkish concerns over separatist Kurdish rebels holed up in bases in northern Iraq. Turkey is seeking an anti-terrorism cooperation agreement with Iraq that would engage its neighbor in cracking down on the rebels of the Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK, which has been attacking targets in Turkey from bases in northern Iraq. "We cannot accept any person or group that is against Turkey," Iraqi Interior Minister Jawad al-Bolani told reporters on arrival at Ankara's airport. "We are here to take up every issue."
