    [02] RUSSIA WARNS ANKARA

    Russia has asked Turkey to withdraw its troops from northern Iraq claiming that the current military operations there could cause serious problems. Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Gennadi Tarasov said that they had asked international parties to respect the territorial integrity of Iraq. Noting that the scope of the operation conducted by the Turkish Armed Forces in northern Iraq was very wide, Tarasov said: "Turkey is directly intervening in the clashes between the Kurdish groups. This development will increase the tension on the region. Thus, Turkey should draw back its troops very soon." /milliyet/

    [03] STATE MINISTER TANER TO WASHINGTON

    The State Minister responsible for the economy will go Washington today to meet with International Monetary Fund (IMF) representatives. A Turkish delegation headed by Taner will discuss a "shadow programme" with IMF officials.

    [04] PKK OPERATION IN IZMIR

    During operations against PKK terrorist organization in Izmir, 20 people have been arrested and 14 of them have been detained. Eight PKK terrorists have been caught in Keban and Dogubeyazit in the southeastern regions of Turkey. /Sabah/

    [05] HOLBROOKE ARRIVES LIKE "A STORM"

    US President Bill Clinton's Special Cyprus Envoy Richard Holbrooke arrived yesterday in Ankara following a summit meeting in Nicosia with Turkish Cypriot President Rauf Denktas and Greek Cypriot leader Glafkos Clerides. Within the framework of his contacts in Ankara, Holbrooke met with Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Ecevit and Foreign Minister Ismail Cem. Developments in Cyprus and Turkey's bid for integration with Europe are top issues on Holbrooke's agenda of discussions in the Turkish capital.

    The visit of Holbrooke indicates that he is determined to take any step to find a solution to the Cyprus issue. Neverthless, he told reporters not to expect a breakthrough in Cyprus. Holbrooke stressed that he wanted to see a bi-zonal, bi-communal Cyprus become a part of the EU. /Milliyet/

    [06] NEW HEAD OF PRESS AND INFORMATION DIRECTORATE

    Foreign Ministry Deputy Chief of the Human Rights Department Aydin Sezgin has been appointed head of the General Directorate for Press and Information. The appointment was approved on Monday by President Suleyman Demirel. The appointment was published in yesterday's Official Gazette and has thus entered into effect. /Hurriyet/
