Erdogan urges EU leaders to take serious steps against PKK
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan yesterday sent letters to the leaders of European Union member states concerning the terrorist PKK. Erdogan urged the leaders to take concrete and genuine steps against the PKK, rather than only declaring it a terrorist group, as the latter is insufficient. Stressing that terrorism threatens all countries, Erdogan called on the EU states to cut off the PKK's political and financial support. He also decried how many top PKK members can easily travel in the European countries and have yet to be extradited, despite Turkey's efforts.
