    Iraq's Kurdish regional government is committed to fighting terrorism, the PM of the Kurdish government in N. Iraq, Nechirvan Barzani, told an American broadcaster, and reiterated the conflict between Turkey and the PKK requires a political solution.

    The conflict in northern Iraq between neighboring Turkey and the outlawed separatist PKK, requires a political solution, Barzani told the Voice of America on Saturday.

    Barzani added Turkey and the United States consider the PKK a terrorist organization.

    Barzani also said the hasty withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq would be catastrophic for the country and the region.

    He said people should not underestimate the progress that has been made in Iraq since U.S. forces toppled Saddam Hussein in 2003, adding Iraq is a special situation that requires patience.

    Barzani met U.S. President George Bush in Washington on Friday.
