TURKEY, July 07, 2003 - Following a meeting with US ambassador Robert Pearson, Turkish Chief of General Staff, General Hilmi Ozkok stated the US' detention of Turkish soldiers in Iraq created the biggest trust crisis between Turkish and American armed forces.
"I would have preferred this not to have happened. I would like to say that I am having a hard time trying to treat this as just a local incident," the general said.
