US CIA chief's secret talks in Turkey on Syria
Panneta’s talks included planning for possible regime change in Syria and ensuring the safety of the Assad family, Sabah wrote.U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) chief Leon Panetta has recently set up a camp in the Turkish capital of Ankara for 5 days in order to discuss with Turkey the uprisings in Arab countries, a Turkish daily reported.


Ankara had an unusual visitor during the days the rebellious acts in Arab countries spread to Syria. At the end of last month, CIA's head Panetta stayed in the city for 5 days and his visit was kept confidential, according to Turkish Sabah Daily.

During his stay, Panetta held talks with the head of the Turkish Intelligence Organization (MIT), members of the government and officials from the General Staff.

MIT chief Hakan Fidan was sent to Syria to meet Syrian President Bashar al-Assad by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan last month.

Panneta's talks included planning for possible regime change in Syria and ensuring the safety of the Assad family, Sabah wrote without saying how it got the information.

The talks also touched on the fighting in Libya, Turkish- Israeli relations, intelligence-sharing in Iraq, cooperation in Afghanistan and the fight against the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party or PKK, Sabah said.
