Turkish, Iraqi and American officials announce ‘action plan’ to combat PKK

The Trilateral Security Committee, composed of Turkey, Iraq and the U.S., announced its ‘action plan’ to combat the PKK terrorist group on April 11.  The plan sets guidelines for the future work of the committee and steps to facilitate joint operations against the PKK. The Trilateral Security Committee was established by the three nations in November 2009.

The U.S. commitment to assist Turkey in defeating the PKK has been an important step to repair the security relations that suffered from the 2003 invasion of Iraq and U.S. reluctance to take direct action against the PKK in northern Iraq.
