Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki ordered the closure of all offices belonging to separatist Kurdish guerrillas in Iraq and said they would not be allowed to operate in Iraqi territory, his office said Tuesday as tensions rose over a threatened Turkish military incursion. Al-Maliki's office said the decision had been relayed to visiting Turkish Foreign Minister Ali Babacan during talks in Baghdad Tuesday. "The Kurdistan Workers' Party is a bad terrorist organization and we have decided to close its offices and not allow it to work on Iraqi territory," the statement quoted al-Maliki as saying. "We will do everything to curtail all terrorist activities that threaten Iraq as well as Turkey."
