"All the Turkish troops have withdrawn and gone back to the Turkish side of the international border. We welcome this, we think this is the right thing for Turkey to do," he said.

A senior Turkish military source said some Turkish troops had returned to bases in Turkey after completing their mission against PKK militants, but that no full withdrawal had begun.
