From Zaman

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan had a phone conversation with Iranian President Ahmedinejad on Friday. The two leaders discussed the Middle East crisis and the PKK terror organization.

Erdogan and Ahmadinejad both agreed that the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) should play an active role in defusing the crisis in the Middle East.

The Iranian President, for his part, said that the international community was standing on like a spectator before the massacre of the Lebanese people.

Erdogan said that Syria and Iran should contribute to a cease fire and to the end of violence in the region. "Iran should act to extinguish the fire.”

Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan had phone talks with US President Bush and UN Secretary General Kofi Annan yesterday.

PM Erdogan also discussed the PKK terror organization and Turkey's intention to crackdown on the PKK terrorists hiding out in north Iraq.
