ANKARA (AFP) - Senior British, French, Turkish and US foreign ministry officials opened talks yesterday on extending humanitarian aid to Iraqi Kurds under the 'Provide Comfort' operation. There are only three weeks left before the multinational forces' planned presence on the Turkish side of the border runs out.

Some 1,800 allied forces have been stationed near the border with Iraq since July 1991, in the aftermath of the Gulf war. It is likely that 'Provide Comfort' will be extended for the third time since its inception.
