WASHINGTON, Nov 5 (Reuters) President George W Bush today called the Kurdish Workers' Party ''an enemy of the United States'' and offered to share intelligence with Turkey to try to halt the rebel group's attacks.
''The PKK is a terrorist organization. They're an enemy of Turkey, they're an enemy of Iraq and they're an enemy of the United States,'' Bush said in an Oval Office meeting with Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan.
As Ankara weighs a possible cross-border incursion into northern Iraq to go after the Kurdish rebels, the Turkish prime minister has made clear he wants concrete action from Washington to counter Kurdish rebels who have been launching attacks on Turkey from Iraqi soil.
