Turkish parliament: Some European countries support PKK
Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan.9 / Trend, A. Taghiyeva /
The terrorist Kurdistan Workers' Party is supported by several European countries, Anadolu Agency quotes Turkish Parliament's Speaker Cemil Cicek as saying on Monday.
International cooperation in combating terrorism is not strong enough and does not work, Cicek said.
The conflict between Turkey and the PKK has been on-going for more than 25 years, claiming over 40,000 lives. The PKK is recognized as a terrorist organization by both the UN and the EU.
PKK militants have previously threatened the Turkish authorities with intensified armed conflict if concrete steps are not taken to address the long-term Kurdish problem.
