QUESTION: Madame Secretary, did you receive all the help you need from the Turks on Georgia?
SECRETARY RICE: Turkey is a terrific ally, including in this most recent crisis. We’ve been in touch several times, as I remember, with this situation because Turkey is a very important power force in the Caucasus and is trying to bring about a more peaceful Caucasus.
