Turkish FM: Not given details yet
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister and FM Abdullah Gul said on Monday that Turkish General Staff has not given detailed information about the incident yet.

Two U.S. warplanes briefly violated Turkish airspace near Iraq last week, the Turkish General Staff said on its internet site on Sunday.

FM Gul told reporters in Ankara that these kind of incidents usually happen in border areas.

"Detailed information about such incidents are given to Ministry of Foreign Affairs by Air Forces and General Staff. And we carry on necessary initiatives. The fact in this incident will be revealed after the detailed information. Was it a coincidence? Was it intentional? How long did it take? All these are detailed information and we will act according to that information," Gul said.

Asked whether Turkey would deliver a note to USA or summon the U.S. ambassador to the ministry, Gul said, "(we will act) according to information and the way it (the incident) happened."
