Kurdish Language

EDM number 1481 in 2010-12, proposed by Tom Brake on 28/02/2011.
Categorised under the topic of Middle East.

That this House notes that the Kurdish community currently forms a significant part of the population of Iraq, Iran, Syria and Turkey; applauds the fact that since the adoption of a new constitution in 2005 Kurdish has been recognised alongside Arabic as an official language in Iraq; and calls on the governments of Iran, Syria and Turkey to recognise Kurdish as an official language and to permit its teaching in schools as a step towards improving the integration of Kurdish communities in society.

This motion has been signed by a total of 17 MPs.
