Obama wants Turkish-Iraqi Kurdish summit
U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama has pledged that if elected he will work to restore Washington's strained relationship with Turkey. Obama further proposed a Turkish-Iraqi Kurdish leaders summit that would seek a comprehensive agreement regarding outstanding issues.
Obama's and his vice presidential candidate Sen. Joe Biden's views on relations with Turkey were part of the Democratic ticket's position paper on major foreign, economic and domestic policies, released on the candidate's Web site recently. The part related to Turkey was headlined "Restoring the Strategic Partnership with Turkey."..>>

Leading effort for Cyprus:
The paper also said Obama and Biden would lead efforts to create a just and lasting political settlement in Cyprus. Obama and Biden "believe strongly that Cyprus should remain a single country in which each of the two communities on the island is able to exercise substantial political authority in its own geographical zone," it said. A solution "would help foster better Greek-Turkish relations, strengthen Turkish democracy, reduce the risk of military conflict and remove a major obstacle to Turkish membership in the EU," it said.
Greek News, a New York-based U.S. Greek magazine, said last week that in a statement to Greek-Americans Obama and Biden had called the Turkish military presence in northern Cyprus "Turkish occupation."
But no such statement was released on Obama's official Web site.
Also the Obama-Biden position paper made no mention of Turkish occupation.
