EU's Solana: Turkey incursion "not best response"

BRDO, Slovenia (Reuters) - Turkey’s land offensive into northern Iraq to hunt down Kurdish PKK guerrillas is not the best way for Ankara to deal with its concerns about attacks, EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana said on Friday.

“We understand the concerns of Turkey ... but we think this action is not the best response. The territorial integrity of Iraq is for us very important,” Solana told a news conference after a meeting of EU defense ministers in Slovenia.
