Erbakan And Qadaffi

Audio will be available later today.

Chris Nuttall from Ankara reports on the controversy surrounding Turkey's Prime Minister Necmettin Erbekan. He has outraged his domestic opponents by a trip to Libya, during which Moammer Khaddafi, at a joint news conference with Erbekan, called for an independent Kurdish state- an anathema to the Turks. He faces a no-confidence vote in Parliament. He has earned the anger of the Clinton Administration for the visit to Libya and one to Iran, and for the deals he has signed with countries on the U.S. embargo list.
