    TURKISH PRESS REVIEW

    OCTOBER 6, 1995

    Summary of the political and economic news in the Turkish press

    this morning.

    [01] CILLER NAMES MINORITY GOVERNMENT

    Prime Minister Tansu Ciller on Thursday announced a minority government to succeed her defunct partnership with the social democrats, securing President Demirel's stamp of approval this time after she was assured of parliamentary support from right and left-wing allies.

    In a statement she issued after the approval of her government, Ciller expressed gratitude to "all the party leaders and deputies who gave their support," saying they had upheld the country's interests.

    Ciller said the government would not be a transitory one and avoided any reference to early elections. She said it would seek to solve the country's problems, including those of workers and the civil servants, and will seek to realize such projects as the customs union (with the EU) and profitable pipeline schemes (for the transport of oil from Azerbaijan and other Turkic states over Turkey.)/All Papers/

    [02] FOUR DAYS AFTER KILLER QUAKE DINAR STILL ROCKS

    Four days after the earthquake catastrophe in which the death toll has now reached 90, the town of Dinar in Afyon province is still shaking, aftershocks continue. According to Kandilli Observatory, which monitors seismic activity in the area, there have been 125 light and medium tremors between Sunday when the major quake took place, and Thursday morning. In the 24-hour period prior to the release of these figures 18 tremors were recorded./All Papers/

    [03] INONU: "RUSSIAN INTENTIONS ARE UNCLEAR"

    Foreign Minister Erdal Inonu said on Thursday that the aims of Russia, with its powerful military capabilities, were still unclear.

    "It is clear that it would be unwise to short-circuit an organization such as NATO," Inonu told a conference organized by the Young Entrepreneurs and Businessmen's Association (GYIAD). "Today, there is no longer the Soviet Union but Russia. Russia is a big state, with vast military power, but its intentions are unclear," Inonu said.

    Ankara wants Russia to accept a compromise plan proposed by NATO that would enable Moscow to deploy more troops in the flank areas than originally planned under the 1990 Conventional Forces in Europe Treaty.

    Turkey's views are also guarded concerning an expansion of NATO that would include eastern-Europe states in the Western alliance, maintaining that this process should be carried out carefully and gradually./All Papers/

    [04] KARABAKH ARMENIANS RELEASE SOLE TURKISH PRISONER

    Following a visit by an international mission, the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabkh this week released their only Turkish prisoner, who they have been holding for two years.

    His release took place following a visit by Ayhan Kemal, Turkey's special envoy for Karabakh as part of the Minsk Group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE)./All Papers/

    [05] US TECHNOLOGY EXPERTS SAYS TURKEY SHOULD GET ON-LINE

    Telecommunications systems, including the Internet, should take a leading role in Turkey's integration with Asian and West European markets, Linda Garcia, director of the US Senate Technological Evaluation Department, said on Thursday, according to the Anatolia news agency.

    Garcia, who attended a conference entitled "The Future of the Internet and Information Networks," organized by the Turkish Scientific and Technical Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) in Ankara, told Anatolia that Turkey had a strategic location in terms of economy. "Turkey really has a great chance before her and the telecommunications syatems are a good means for Turkey's stepping forward in terms of enlarging into more markets," Garcia was quoted as saying.

    Underlying that the Internet played had an important role in economic development, Garcia noted that Turkey, in the Middle East, was the country where the Internet system was the most wide-spread and added that the use of it should be encouraged and that Turkish people should be provided with more information on it.

    [06] GERMANY STARTS SHIPMENT OF ARMS TO TURKEY

    Germany, after last month's decision to release frozen military grants to Turkey, has resumed military shipments, a German Defence Ministry spokesman said on Thursday.
