Öcalan's books exhibited at international book fair in Libya

The books of Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan attracted readers’ attention at an international book fair in Libya.

The book fair attended by more than 300 publishing houses from 12 Arab countries kicked off in Benghazi, Libya on October 15 and ended on Sunday, October 23. The annual book fairs could not be held regularly in war-torn Libya in recent years.

Hundreds of books, including those written by Kurdish authors, were exhibited at the fair. The books of Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan were among the books that were particularly popular. His books translated into English, Arabic and other languages were also exhibited at the fair.

The director of Nefretît Publishing House said that the participation of Kurdish institutions and publishing houses in the international book fair is more important than ever for the introduction of the ideas of the Kurds to other peoples.
