Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday that his nation cannot wait forever for the Iraqi government to act against rebels in the north, but British Prime Minister Gordon Brown continued to urge restraint. Erdogan said Turkey and the Iraqi government had developed a mechanism for dealing with the Kurdish Workers Party (PKK) guerrillas in northern Iraq. "We waited for 14 months for this mechanism to bear fruit, but it did not, and we cannot wait forever," Erdogan said, adding later: "We have to make our own decisions."
