TURKISH MEDIA: TERM "GENOCIDE" NOT TO BE USED IN EUROPEAN COMMISSION REPORT



/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The report on Turkey to be issued by the European
Commission is in the limelight of the Turkish press. According to Zaman
Turkish newspaper, despite the efforts of the Armenian lobbyists the
authors of the report will avoid term "genocide". The report maintains
a provision about Armenian-Turkish relations, where the phrase "tragic
events of 1915" is used. It mentions that Turkish Prime Minister Recep
Tayip Erdogan sent a letter to Armenian President Robert Kocharian,
in which an examination of 1915 events by independent experts is
suggested. The paper addresses also Robert Kocharian's proposal to
start negotiations without preconditions.

According to report of Milliyet Turkish newspaper, the report will
not rate Kurds as national minorities. The term "national minority
will refer to representatives of non-Muslim peoples only.
