    The US appointed "Special Coordinator" for the struggle against the PKK, former General Joseph Ralston, has submitted his resignation to the State Department.

    According to Hurriyet sources in Washington, DC, Ralston's resignation was a result of the former general's perception that no movement forward was being made on the coordinated efforts between Turkey and the US to fight against the PKK presence in northern Iraq. The same sources have asserted that though Ralston's resignation was already submitted, the State Department has yet to make it official. The source commented that this was because "They want to keep this theater play going...."  Since the August, 2006 start of the joint cooperative efforts against the PKK, Ralston had work closely with former Turkish general Edip Baser. Following Baser's resignation from the position last year, Ralston had made only minimal contact with his Turkish counterparts.
