He said he understands anxiety of Turkish government agencies and underlined that their demands are right.
Daniel Fried said that Recep Tayyip Erdogan and George Bush will today discuss fight against PKK terror and cooperation with Iraqi government bodies on this issue.
Assessing the possibility of PKK’s threat for Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline Daniel Fried said that a terrorist organization always poses threat.
“But I am sure that this will not happen, because the US is closely cooperating with the participating countries in ensuring the security of the pipeline,” he said.
Daniel Fried also touched on the problem of Islamic radicals.
“Threat of Islamic radicalism exists in several countries, but believing in Islam and radical grouping are quite different things,” he said. /APA/
