The most senior leader in Iraq's Kurdish region on Friday warned the autonomous district will defend itself against any Turkish cross-border military strike against PKK rebels. Massoud Barzani, president of northern Iraq's Kurdish region, also said urgent talks were needed to ease the standoff. Turkey has flatly declared it is out of patience with escalating attacks by guerrillas who use hideouts in northern Iraq. As both Baghdad and Washington struggled to avert conflict between two of its key allies in the region, Turkey's prime minister insisted that the camps of Kurdish rebels in northern Iraq must be destroyed and rebel leaders extradited to Turkey for trial.
