    Turkish official says no plans for parliament vote on US troop deployments


    The leader of Turkey's ruling party has cast doubt on US plans to invade Iraq from Turkey, saying there are still no plans for a parliamentary debate on the issue on the eve of a special cabinet meeting.

    "There is nothing in the works for the moment," said Recep Tayyip Erdogan, leader of the Justice and Development party (AKP).

    This could prove a setback to the US military as it had hoped to begin moving its troops into Turkey as early as this week.

    Ankara had been widely expected to give its approval to a deal that would allow tens of thousands of US troops into Turkey to launch an invasion of neighbouring Iraq, after Prime Minister Abdullah Gul announced a special cabinet meeting for later Monday.

    Mr Erdogan had himself hinted that the parliament could be asked to approve the deployment of US forces, if sufficient progress had been made in negotiations over a proposed compensation package of financial aid from Washington.
