Washington - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday he expected a meeting of Turkish and Israeli officials next month to yield positive results, after the sides collaborated closely following a bomb attack in Istanbul that killed Israeli tourists.

The suicide bombing, blamed on Islamic State, that killed three Israeli tourists and an Iranian in central Istanbul on March 19 was not just an attack aimed at Israel, Erdogan also said in a speech at the Brookings Institute think tank.

Erdogan also said the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which has fought the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, was serving its own purpose. The United States has worked closely with PKK-affiliated Syrian Kurdish militias in its fight against Islamic State.‎
