In New York, NY for a summit of United Nations leaders, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan enters his room at the historic Waldorf Astoria Hotel, immediately switching on the television. Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul and some of PM Erdogan's advisors are also in the room, and they are all surprised at what they see when they turn on the television. There is a live broadcast on Fox News, and US President George W. Bush is talking to Iraqi President Jelal Talabani. Just as 175 world leaders have begun to sweep into New York, Bush is hosting Talabani. And in the White House to boot. In this way, from the moment PM Erdogan sets foot in New York, the subjects of Iraq, PKK terror, and the new leadership in the region come onto the agenda.
