US to supply Turky drones

The United States has agreed “in principle” to deploy Predator drones on Turkish soil, the Turkish prime minister said Friday. Turkey has offered to buy or lease the drones, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said. The United States currently shares drone surveillance data from northern Iraq with Turkey to aid its fight against Kurdish rebels who have bases in Iraq.
