Kurdish Ceasefire

EDM number 1662 in 1997-98, proposed by John Austin on 19/10/1998.

That this House welcomes the recent unilateral cease-fire declared by the PKK in south east Turkey; believes that there can be no military victory for either side in the 15 year old war between the Kurdish people and the Turkish state; and calls on the Turkish government to recognise the Kurdish identity, to end all human rights violations and take the opportunity presented by the cease-fire to create a peaceful, political solution to the conflict.

This motion has been signed by a total of 27 MPs.
