Iraq's VP warns against Turkish incursion

Iraqi Vice President Tariq al-Hashimi on Tuesday warned against a possible Turkish incursion into Iraq to fight separatist Kurdish guerrillas and promised to prevent cross-border attacks by the rebels. "We want both countries to respect the borders of each other and expect the sides to be against such a thing," al-Hashimi said upon his arrival in Ankara for a one-day visit. He was responding to a question about a possible Turkish incursion into his country to hunt down guerrillas of the Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK.
