Tripartite Conspiracy against Kurdish Resistance Movement

The revelation of the tripartite conspiracies of the US, Turkey and Iraq against the Kurdish Resistance Movement has each day become clearer.

The delegations of the three powers had previously and secretly convened in Istanbul and pledged to end the Kurdish Resistance Movement led by the Kurdistan Worker Party (PKK). The US committed to transfer intelligences about the positions of the Kurdish guerrillas to the Turkish authorise.

In the meantime it has been reported that the Turkish Military Forces are adamant in their operation across the pseudo-borders of Southern and Northern Kurdistan and they have recently elevated the numbers of their troops as well as their ammunitions.

According to the reports the intelligences that the US officials are gathering about the positions of the Kurdish Defence Forces (HPG) are sent to the northern Iran whereby they are dispatched to the Turkish officials within the course 24 hours.

Kurdistan Defence Forces are the defensive wing of the Kurdistan Worker Party (PKK), which was founded in 1973 as the result of the continuous and systematic oppressions and the denial of the Kurdish nation by the occupying powers of Kurdistan. The PKK took up arm in 1984 since all the possible political and diplomatic means applied for 11 years in between 1973-84 proved exhausted. The PKK however declared its first unilateral ceasefire in 1993 since it believed the arm struggle hit its targets. Since 1993 to date the PKK has declared unilateral ceasefires in 6 different occasions and called upon Ankara to solve the Kurdish problem in a peaceful democratic procedure.

Despite the facts that the PKK has declared 6 unilateral ceasefires and also it sent peace groups in two different occasions yet the PKK is considered as a 'terrorist' organization by Ankara and the US. It also continues to be on the blacklist in EU despite the court ruling, which overturned the decision to place the Kurdish freedom movement on the EU's terror list “By labelling PKK as a terrorist organisation, the EU and the US are giving the Turkey a green light to target its civilians. They give the Turkish government a free hand to do what it will, a mother of Kurdish martyr said”.

It should be noted that after 1954, apart from the Korean war, 1949-52 and the invasion of Cyprus, 1974, the Turkish Army operations have continued to be exclusively against the Kurds.
