New Turkish leader vows to wipe out terrorism

Turkey's new prime minister, Bulent Ulusu, has pledged to wipe out terrorism nationwide as the ruling military council and the civilian government begin tackling the country's economic and internal-security problems. The National Security Council has already made it clear it will pursue a foreign policy similar to that of the previous government -- based on military ties with NATO and economic relations predominantly with the West. The appointment of Turgut Ozal as deputy prime minister also confirmed that economic policies would be maintained. Mr. Ozal came up with the package of austerity measures adopted in January and negotiated unprecedented loans and debt rescheduling with Western governments and international organizations.
