Turkey and the Obama administration will step up their fight against the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, as the U.S. completes its military withdrawal from Iraq, Turkish President Abdullah Gul said.

The Turkish-U.S. battle against the PKK, which both countries list as a terrorist group, will “continue in a much more powerful manner,” Gul said in a video on his website after he met with U.S. Vice President Joe Biden in Ankara today. “His meetings in Iraq on this matter are very decisive,” Gul said.
