Armenian, Cypriot, and Kurdish organisations have condemned Turkish aggression in Kurdistan.
Armenian, Cypriot, and Kurdish organisations have condemned Turkish aggression in Kurdistan. In a press release, they called for sanctions and diplomatic efforts to stop the Turkish assault on the region.
The statement said: "The UK’s largest representative bodies of Kurdish, Armenian and Cypriot communities have visited 10 Downing Street and delivered a letter demanding Boris Johnson take action to stop Turkey’s military invasion of South Kurdistan."
Signatories included Elif Sarican, co-chair of the Kurdish People’s Democratic Assembly of Britain; Christos Karaolis, president of the National Federation of Cypriots in the UK; and Annette Moskofian, chair of the Armenian National Committee UK.
The statement added: "We urge the Government to use its diplomatic position to stop the invasion and prevent an intra-Kurdish war. We particularly ask for the government to put in place sanctions to be lifted only when Turkey ceases its military operations in South Kurdistan."
