/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Turkey can follow the example of Israel and send
troops to Iraq to destroy bases of the Kurdish Workers Party (PKK),
Head of Hay Dat Office, ARF Dashnaktsutyun Bureau Responsible for
Foreign Policy Affairs Kiro Manoyan stated in Yerevan. In his words,
Turkey may venture to do it only with the support of the US. At
that the ARF Dashnaktsutyun Bureau representative underscored that
Turkish PM Erdogan’s latest statements are meant for internal use
first of all. "Elections will be held in Turkey soon and its quite
understandable that Erdogan has to made populist statements. This
refers to possible Turkish membership at the EU as well. They
understand very well themselves that 10-15 years of negotiations
are not a limit and Turkey might never become a full EU member,"
Manoyan said.

He stressed that election of Erdogan as President will not put an
end to the Kemalist era. "Islamists, whom the PM leads, merely want
to limit the sphere of activities of the General Staff, determining
the foreign and internal policy of Turkey," Manoyan underscored.
