    An ongoing close cooperation exists between Germany and the Turkish government in the fight against the PKK, and any threat could damage their determination for cooperation, the Anatolian Agency quoted the German Interior Minister as saying Wednesday.

    Efforts that had been carried out to close down the Roj TV, the media organ of the terrorist organization, were the sample of the cooperation between the two countries, Wolfgang Schaeuble told an interview with a group of Turkish journalists visiting Germany.


    Over recent years, German authorities have regularly arrested and tried suspected PKK members.


    The government has also banned Roj TV, a station which is a PKK propaganda machine, from broadcasting in Germany.


    The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey as well as the most of the international community, including the United States and the European Union.


    Turkey welcomed Germany's support to its fight against the terrorist organization, Turkish diplomatic sources told Anatolian Agency. According to the same sources, Turkey, however, felt uneasy over the PKK's several activities in Germany.


    Turkish citizens who were born in Germany had to make a choice between Turkish and German citizenship after a certain age since they did not accept dual citizenship any longer, Schaueble also said when asked about Germany's migration law.
