Turkey Says War Should Be Confined to Iraq
Monday, Apr 14, 2003; 8:53 AM

ANKARA, Turkey -- Turkey said Monday that Syria should not become a target of U.S.-led forces, amid charges by U.S. officials that Syria has weapons of mass destruction and is sheltering Iraqi leaders.

"This war should end in Iraq," Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul said at a joint news conference with visiting Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom. "In our opinion, no one should allow new conflicts or new tensions in the region. No one should permit new developments that would further disturb the region."

"Now Iraq, then Syria, then Iran. . . .These are of course, very disturbing. There is a need to demonstrate that these are not true," Gul said. "The region is worn out enough."
