Turkey's military and civilian leaders will discuss on Wednesday the scope and duration of a possible cross-border offensive against Kurdish rebels in Iraq as public support for action grows. Turkey, which has moved troops to the Iraq border, warned Iraq and Western allies on Tuesday that the attack is imminent unless the US-backed government in Baghdad takes action, and said there would be no cease-fire with the separatist fighters. Turkish leaders face growing demands at home to stage the offensive in northern Iraq, where the rebels of the Kurdistan Workers' Party - the PKK - rest, train and get supplies in relative safety before returning to Turkey to conduct attacks. Iraq proposed to send a high-level delegation to Turkey in a few days to discuss the problem.
