Faced with mounting shortages, Iraq tried to blow a hole in the U.N. trade blockade Wednesday but Turkey turned down Baghdad's request for food and medicine. Iraq sent one of its top officials, Oil Minister Issam Abdul-Rahim Chalabi, to the Turkish border to appeal for the supplies. "We told them Turkey would abide by the U.N. sanctions to the very last," Turkish State Minister Isin Celebi told reporters following a four-hour meeting on the frontier with the delegation from Iraq.

The European Commission disagreed, saying the Cyprus question should be dealt with in a United Nations framework. Turkey signed an EU protocol Friday but issued a declaration stipulating that the act did not signify recognition of the Greek Cypriot government.

This nation appeared Friday to take a step toward allowing U.S. troops to be stationed on Turkish soil to open a northern front against neighboring Iraq in the event of war. The influential National Security Council, which unites Turkey's generals and political leaders, urged the government to win parliamentary approval for "military measures" if war breaks out, but it stopped short of an explicit call for bases to be opened to U.S. forces.

The association could not wait for the needy to ask for assistance, Halaq said; it must try harder to locate those needing medical aid. "Your work here is good, but there are shortages," he said recently, looking at Kewara through bloodshot eyes.
