Jordan said Monday it was deeply concerned by a Turkish troop offensive in northern Iraq and urged dialogue between the neighbors to resolve the brewing crisis. Jordan's comments come as dozens of Turkish military vehicles headed toward the Iraqi border Monday, a day after 12 soldiers were killed in an ambush by Kurdish rebels. The attack has pushed Turkey closer to a possible incursion into Iraq to target insurgents hiding there. Chief Jordanian government spokesman Nasser Judeh said Turkey was an "important" player in the region's landscape but "we're concerned about Iraq's security, unity and integrity." "We're very worried about what's happening in that area and we urge everybody to refrain from violence, but resort to dialogue to solve this issue peacefully," Judeh told a press briefing.
