Turkish daily newspapers on Thursday covered a meeting between Turkish foreign minister and leader of the regional administration in Iraq's north, death of Ataturk's adoptive daughter Ulku Adatepe, a PKK ambush in Turkey's southeast that killed 2 two Turkish troops, and a Turkish military exercise along the border with Syria. The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.
"Barzani vows to fight common threats," daily HURRIYET headlined over an Irbil meeting on Wednesday between Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and Massoud Barzani, leader of the regional administration in northern Iraq. The daily said Davutoglu had conveyed Turkey's uneasiness over PYD, an affiliate group of the terrorist PKK in Syria. The daily cited Barzani as giving assurances that his administration would consider "any organization or group a common threat and fight against them jointly."
"Barzani got the message," daily TURKIYE quoted Davutoglu as saying, and that the Turkish FM reportedly told Barzani that developments in Syria risked instability in the region in an over three-hour meeting in Irbil.
"We lost Ataturk's memorial," daily MILLIYET headlined over the demise of Ulku Adatepe, adoptive daughter of the founder of modern Turkey. The daily said Adatepe was killed in a car accident near Istanbul at the age of 80.
Daily MILLIYET said two Turkish troops were killed near the southeastern town of Lice when PKK terrorists detonated a remote-control landmine and opened fire on a military convoy.
"The first ever in years," daily VATAN headlined over a military exercise of two dozen Turkish tanks along the Syrian border. The daily said the military maneuver, the first ever military exercise in many years along Turkey's borders, came days after PYD, an affiliate group of the terrorist PKK in Syria, claimed control in Qamishli, a Syrian city just across the border with Turkey's Nusaybin town.
