Recent arrest of Kurdish representatives, notably in France and Belgium:
Stop the criminalization of Kurds; for a political solution to the Kurdish issue

Wednesday, March 10 at 15.00
Press Room European Parliament, Strasbourg
 
with Mr. Fayik YAGIZAY and Mr Faruk Eyyup DORU, European representatives of the pro-Kurdish BDP party.
 
The EU and its Member States must facilitate political dialogue between the Turkish government and the Kurds for a political solution. The recent arrests of Kurds, particularly in France and Belgium, aim to reduce the Kurdish issue to a security issue and are unacceptable. At the press conference we will present the latest information on those Kurds involved who are currently subject to restrictions of freedom.
