Talabani: There are no ways Turkish troops would be allowed in Kurdistan

21/07/2003   KurdishMedia.com - By Bryar Mariwani
London (KurdishMedia.com) 21 July 2003: The general secretary of the
Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, Jalal Talabani, said in the fringe of the
Socialist International meeting in Rome, that there are no ways for the
Turkish troops to be allowed in Kurdistan, reported the Turkish news channel
NTV.

Turkey has already said that it wants to abolish the federal form of
administration in south Kurdistan (Northern Iraq), Talabani has told the NTV
channel.

During the meeting Talabani stated that if Turkey has intentions to serve in
other parts of Iraq than our region, let God help them.

They have already stated what they want to if they enter "Northern Iraq", he
said. They want to take the weapons from the peshmerges; abolish the federal
administration and the Kurdish parliament. Talabani has added.
