EUROPE UNDER TURKISH PRESSURE : Erdogan calls for extradition of arrested PKK Cadres in Europe
REUTERS – AP – Agencies – : Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday called for the extradition of more than 20 members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) arrested in multiple police raids in France and Spain.
“As long as these terrorists aren’t handed over to us, the steps taken make no sense to us, because what we want is results,” the premier said during a press conference in Ankara. “There is an extradition agreement between us, common agreements to fight the organisation of terrorists. This one has officially been branded a terrorist organisation, which has led to thousands of legal proceedings in this country, but there are no results,” he said.
