Turkey Opposes Independence for Iraq's Kurds

The Turkish government said on Monday that it was against Iraq's Kurdistan region splitting away from Baghdad, after Sunni terrorists seized a vast swath of territory in Turkey's conflict-torn neighbor.

"The government is very closely monitoring the developments in Iraq," Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc was quoted by AFP as having told reporters after a cabinet meeting.
