U.S.: PKK a terrorist organization
The United States considers PKK a terrorist organization, a State Department spokesman said.

Tom Casey told reporters in Washington that he knows of no secret plans for joint operations against the group, the New Anatolian reported.

But he said that the U.S. government believes that Turkey and Iraq should work together to fight the PKK and said the United States would cooperate.

Turkey has recently said that the PKK has found sanctuary in Iraqi Kurdistan.

In Turkey, Deniz Baykal, head of the Republican People's Party, the major opposition group, said that the government needs to take stronger measures against terrorism.

"Such steps may involve serious negotiations with the Iraqi government, officials in northern Iraq, and the United States," he said.
