KT News and Comment:
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan told a news conference today that he will not allow the creation of another Kurdistan Regional Government in the west of Kurdistan.
Erdogan told a journalist that his government would not allow its authority to be undermined, having already spent around $600 million backing and supplying arms to the Syrian opposition and giving aid for refugees.
His comments are indicative of how the Turkish state still has the arrogant Ataturk mentality, always believing that history is on its side.
The Kurdistan Regional Government in the south of Kurdistan was established, not by a decision of Turkey, but by the will of the Kurdish people.
The people of the west of Kurdistan have similar aspirations and, because of this, they have effectively liberated most of the cities and villages of their region.
