Turkey Experiences Setbacks in Human Rights Reforms

In an interview with Aztag Daily–Professor Noam Chomsky said that although Turkey has made slow progress in improving its Human Rights record since 2002–lately the country has regressed in reforms.

According to Chomsky–the Turkish Armed Forces do not want to lose their hold on Turkish society. He also said that the EU’s reluctance to admitting Turkey into the Union has become apparent in Turkey. All these are reasons for the setbacks in reforms–said Chomsky.

The entire interview–in which Chomsky also discusses US foreign policy–issues relating to the Middle East–and the present geo-political situation using historical examples–will appear in Aztag and the international press in coming days.
