State Department: Worldwide Caution - Kurdish Reaction, February 16, 1999

Worldwide Caution - Kurdish Reaction
February 16, 1999

Kurds in Europe have reacted angrily to the announcement on February 15 of the transfer of PKK leader Abdulla Ocalan to Turkey. Greek diplomatic missions and personnel have been subjected to violence, and it is possible that this danger may extend to American interests as well. U.S. Government personnel and facilities are taking appropriate security measures.

Americans travelling or residing abroad are urged to review their personal security in light of the above and to contact the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate by telephone or fax for up-to-date information on security conditions. In addition, U.S. citizens planning to travel abroad should consult the Department of State9s Public Announcements, Travel Warnings, Consular Information Sheets, and regional travel brochures. Current information is also available on the Internet at

This Worldwide Caution Public Announcement supplements the Worldwide Caution - Iraq Crisis Public Announcement of December 16, 1998, and the Worldwide Caution Public Announcement of December 24, 1998, and expires March 31, 1999.
