Turkey's Chief General Staff Gen.Yasar Buyukanit rejected U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates' demand from Turkey to send combat teams to Afghanistan.

''We battle against terrorism even at the moment. Turkish soldiers are at a war against PKK. Therefore, it is not possible for us to send any soldiers for the combat against terrorism in Afghanistan'', Buyukanit said.  

Turkey, which has commanded the ISAF twice, has around 750 troops in the Kabul area. In addition, there are around 100 Turkish military and civilian personnel based in Vardak in southern Kabul who make up provincial reconstruction teams.
