    Speaking to reporters before flying to Malaysia to attend an extraordinary meeting of the Organization for the Islamic Conference (OIC), Erdogan stated that the meeting's participants would have the opportunity to evaluate the crisis in the Mideast and the situation of Lebanon under Israel’s bombings. “Israel is using disproportionate force in this war,” said Erdogan. “We can’t let this war, which is fueling hatred, to grow more violent. We won’t just stand and watch developments in the region. We hope that the European Union and the United Nations will put forward a determined stance for peace there.” /Turkiye/

    Speaking at a press conference yesterday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Namik Tan said that fighting the terrorist PKK was one of the top priorities of the government and security forces in Turkey. Saying that effective work was being carried out under the Anti-Terror Law, Tan added that the issue was also being closely followed by Iraq and US. Tan stated that Ankara had briefed Iraqi officials about its concern over the PKK presence in Iraq and that it would continue to do so. “The authorities briefed us about measures they would take against the PKK,” said Tan. “We hope that these measures have concrete results.” /Sabah/

    [06] IRAQ’S TALABANI: “WE’LL DO OUR BEST TO PREVENT THE TERRORIST PKK FROM ATTACKING TURKEY FROM OUR TERRITORY”

    Iraqi President Jalal Talabani said yesterday that the Iraqi government would do its best to prevent the terrorist group PKK from attacking Turkey from Iraqi soil. Speaking at a press conference, Talabani said that the Iraqi government was determined to prevent terrorist groups from using Iraqi territory to attack its neighbors, adding that he had given assurances to Ankara on this. “We have closed some of the PKK’s offices in Baghdad,” said Talabani, adding that a tripartite meeting could be held between US, Iraqi, and Kurdish officials to discuss the issue. /Milliyet/

    [07] GULER: “WE’LL PUT MORE EMPHASIS ON DOMESTIC ENERGY RESOURCES”

    [09] SMALL BULLETS KILL CHILDREN, DON’T THEY?BY FIKRET BILA (MILLIYET)

    Columnist Fikret Bila comments on the situation in Palestine and Lebanon through the observations of Justice and Development Party (AKP) Sakarya Deputy Suleyman Gunduz. A summary of his column is as follows:

    “Justice and Development Party (AKP) Sakarya Deputy Suleyman Gunduz just got back from Palestine. He told me what he had seen in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Dr. Gunduz is a member of the volunteer aid group Doctors Worldwide. He goes to Palestine and Lebanon under their auspices and tries to provide people with urgent humanitarian aid. Dr. Gunduz said that he had seen in the West Bank and Gaza Strip that war has its worst impact on children, and told me of something he experienced in the Balkans following the Srebrenica massacre years ago. A mother who was standing at the grave of her four-year-old child told Dr. Gunduz that her child had asked her if soldiers kill children with small bullets. Dr. Gunduz told me that this was the reality of war from children’s point of view and that actually the child had accepted the war and wanted the bullet to be small so it wouldn’t hurt. Now Palestinian and Lebanese children must be asking themselves the same question.

    Dr. Gunduz told Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan of his experiences in the West Bank and Gaza Strip and said that the Gaza Strip had turned into an open prison and that the children were the hardest hit by these terrible conditions. He condemned Israel’s attacks on the town of Qana which killed 37 children and dozens of other civilians and added, ‘Children are dying every day in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. There are two basic reasons for this. First, there is no electricity. You can’t perform operations. There is no medicine, or medical equipment. An air corridor should be established with the Gaza Strip to carry these children and sick people. I told Mr. Erdogan my views about the issue.’ Dr. Gunduz mentioned these three urgent requests for the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Lebanon: opening air corridors for health purposes, extending aid for rehabilitation and medical materials, and establishing humanitarian aid corridors. According to Gunduz, Turkey should do its best to ensure these and try to set the international community in motion. The region expects many things from Turkey, and Ankara knows it. Dr. Gunduz said that volunteer doctors and other health personnel were trying to help however they can but that the international community should act more effectively and swiftly to provide humanitarian aid. Gunduz also said that he has seen that these people who are in very difficult conditions trusted Turkey very much and that they believe Ankara will be very effective in extending humanitarian aid and helping put an end to the attacks.”
