Ms. Clinton stressed that the United States will continue its strong cooperation with Turkey as they work to combat violent extremism in all its forms and safeguard the security of peace-loving people everywhere.

PKK is a Kurdish organization which has been fighting an armed struggle against the Turkish state for an autonomous Kurdistan and greater cultural and political rights for the Kurds in Turkey. Its ideology was originally a fusion of revolutionary socialism and Kurdish nationalism.
