PKK Demands Own Apology From Israel


AZG DAILY #163, 15-09-2011

Israel should apologize to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, for
its role in capturing the group’s leader, a high-ranking member of the
organization has said.

The statement from Murat Karayılan comes in response to Israeli
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman’s suggestion that Israel could
establish contact with the PKK in the face of the mounting diplomatic
crisis between Turkey and Israel. “The PKK is not the [kind of]
movement that would allow itself to be used against some other state.
If the Israeli state wants to establish relations with the PKK, it
must first apologize to the PKK and the Kurdish people for its role in
the capture of the PKK’s leadership through an international
conspiracy and handing [them] over to Turkey,” Karayılan said,
according to the pro-Kurdish Fırat News Agency.
