Kurdish institute's ad angers Turkey

Turkish Daily News


Friday, May 23, 2008 

An advertisement by the Kurdish Institute of Paris and deputies of Turkey's pro-Kurdish party, or DTP, that appeared in Le Monde calling for an international mediator to help in solving the Kurdish problem sparked angry reaction in Turkey yesterday.

“Listed as a terrorist organization by both the United States and the European Union and which puts certain conditions for ending terrorist activities, this group's efforts to regain ground and support it has lost in Turkey in other countries will be futile,” the Foreign Ministry said in a written statement yesterday.

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner, Spanish Prime Minister Felipe Gonzales and former Finnish Prime Minister Marti Ahtisaari are cited as names to be possible mediators, the advertisement read.The ad, with the headline “A call for a peaceful solution to the Kurdish problem in Turkey,” was signed by 1,000 people, including deputies of the DTP.

The ministry said the ad contained wrong and one-sided information adding, “The biggest obstacle in front of Turkey's democratization and improvement of human rights is the terrorist organization.”

It said some of the signatories of the ad were members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, who were sought by Interpol and drew attention to the fact that no nongovernmental organization which exerts efforts to develop human rights in Turkey had signed the document.
