Kurdistan National Congress Urges EU to Drop Turkey

Below is the complete text of the statement: But the fact is that the European approach during the recent talks with the Turkish delegation was very disappointing and even shocking for the Kurdish people, because the European representatives didn’t mention the fate and the rights of 25 million Kurds living in Turkey with one single word and in this respect didn’t make any deman’s to the Turkish government. This approach of your and other European governmen’s is very similar to the British appeasement policy versus Nazi Germany during the agreement of Munich in 1938 when Czechoslovakia was sacrificed to the German aggressor, and Chamberlain’s "peace in our time" led directly to World War II. No European government seems really to concern about the fact that Erdogan’s so highly praised reforms exist on paper only up till now. We are deeply afraid that Kurdish human and political rights might be ignored in future, too, since at this critical moment of decision even the mere words Kurds and Kurdistan were not allowed to be mentioned, in order to avoid Turkey to be offended by the mention of these words. This way the European Union will no longer be a stronghold of human rights and liberty and equality of nations. In contrary it will be conquered by the Trojan horse of Kemalist Fascism. As long as Turkey will not recognize its genocide against the Armenia’s during the World War I, and the existence of 25 million Kurds within her frontiers and will not recognize the culture and the human rights of these 25 million Kurds, there shouldn’t take place any negotiations about Turkey’s entry to the EU. And Turkey will be able to do that only when there will be a new and really democratic Turkish constitution, respecting human and political rights of all nationalities living in Turkey, the Kurds, Armenia’s, Laz, Arabs, Greeks and others. Likewise the Turkish military has to be deprived of all its political, economical and social power. Because it is the military always defending Kemalism and fighting Kurdish culture, language and national rights. As long as Europe is wearing a muzzle ordered by Turkey and doesn’t even dare to use the words Kurds and Kurdistan or the Armenian genocide, Turkey’s and Europe’s problems won’t be solved, and they won’t be any better than the European representatives who sacrificed Czechoslovakia to Hitler. We are hoping very much, might share the Kurdish worries about European policy with Turkey, and might do much more in future to defend the human and political rights of the Kurds and other nations in Turkey. Yours sincerely Dr. Jawad Mella President Kurdistan National Congress
