    In meetings with Turkish Foreign Minister Ali Babacan, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al Maliki underscored yesterday an important detail concerning why it is that Baghdad has not been able to fulfill Ankara's expectations in terms of dealing with the PKK presence in northern Iraq.

    Maliki told Babacan that the PKK represented a very real threat also for Baghdad, in that PKK forces had already threatened to blow up Iraq's petrol pipes and lines in the north. Maliki also referred to the economic blow that the potential blowing up of petrol lines would mean for Baghdad, with petrol export being a crucial source of income for Iraq.
