    Summary of the political and economic news in the Turkish

    press this morning

    [01] TANSU CILLER'S DYP MINORITY GOVERNMENT

    Prime Minister: Tansu Ciller, Foreign Minister: Coskun Kirca, Health Minister: Dogan Baran, Transport Minister: Ali Sevki Erek, Agriculture and Rural Affairs: Nafiz Kurt, Defence: Vefa Tanir, State Ministers: Necmettin Cevheri, Cavit Caglar, Esat Kiratlioglu, Refaiddin Sahin, Ayvaz Gokdemir, Omer Barutcu, Interior: Nahit Mentese, State Ministers: Baki Tug, Isilay Saygin, Salim Ensarioglu, Mehmet Batalli, Munif Islamoglu, Aykon Dogan, Environment: Ahmet Hamdi Ucpinarlar, Labour and Social Security: Ates Amiklioglu, Industry and Commerce: Abdulkadir Atac, Tourism: Bilal Gungor, Forestry: Hasan Ekinci, Energy and Natural Resources: Sinasi Altiner, Education: Turhan Tayan, Culture: Koksal Toptan, Finance: Ismet Atilla, Public Works and Housing: Tunc Bilget and Justice: Bekir Sami Dace.

    [02] VOTE OF CONFIDENCE FOR THE NEW GOVERNMENT

    On October 15, the minority government formed by Prime Minister Tansu Ciller will try for a parliamentary vote of confidence. To obtain a vote of confidence, the new government needs to ensure an ordinary majority, that is a majority of those present and voting in the Assembly. According to the latest calculations of the True Path Party (DYP), 217 votes will be obtained. Nevertheless, the oposition parties, taking advantage of the fact that Assembly Speaker Husamettin Cindoruk has resigned, are engaged in backstage negotiations and maneuvering and are trying to find a way to overturn the cabinet. The government programme will be debated on October 13. After the termination of the debate, a one day "cooling-off" period is provided for by the constitution. Then the vote of confidence is expected to be taken on October 15. /Sabah/

    [03] DEMIREL IN DINAR

    President Suleyman Demirel visited Dinar where almost 10,000 people have left their damaged houses following last week's major earthquake which killed 90 people and injured several others. The people remaining in the once 30,000-strong town are living in tents. The town is still being shaken by minor tremors. President Demirel, visiting the devastated town for the second time, promised to build "the most beautiful town in Turkey" in Dinar. "But first we are planning to shelter you elsewhere during the upcoming winter" he said. /Cumhuriyet/

    [04] TURKEY AND ESTONIA TO SIGN TOURISM AGREEMENT

    Turkey and Estonia will sign a tourism development cooperation agreement, reported the Anatolia news agency yesterday. Quoting Tourism Ministry sources, the agency said that the agreement will be signed by Bilal Gungor, recently appointed Turkey's new Tourism Minister. The two countries will encourage their tourist agencies and organizations to include the other country in their programs, organize tours for students and youth, and publish promotional tourist literature about each other.

    [05] TURKISH SECURITY DELEGATION IN BAKU

    A Turkish security delegation visiting Tehran for a meeting of the Turkish-Iranian Joint Security Commission has left for Ourumiye, the capital of Iran's western Azerbaijan district, for security observations in this frontier area. The delegation is visiting at the invitation of Iranian officials in order to see firsthand how security there can be strengthened, the Anatolia news agency reported yesterday. "The Joint Security Commission has been very successful and has come a long way since its establishment" said one of the western Azeri officials responsible for reporting political affairs to the Iranian daily Cumhuri Islami.

    [06] TURKEY, WORLD'S 13TH LARGEST STEEL PRODUCER

    Turkey ranked 13th in world crude steel production with 8.75 million tons during the period between January and August of this year. This year's steel production is a 12 % increase from the 7.76 million tons that were produced for the same period last year, representing the highest increase in production in the world. Japan remains the world's top crude steel producer with 68.76 million tons. /Cumhuriyet/

    [07] FOREIGN DIPLOMATS IN ANKARA

    Ankara is maintaining its position as a centre of diplomatic activity with the visits of Estonian Foreign Minister Riivo Sinjar and Dutch Deputy Foreign Minister Hans Dijkstaal. Estonian Minister Sinjar is the first guest of Foreign Minister Coskun Kirca, and he will leave Turkey tomorrow after a round of contacts. Dutch visitor Dijskaal is in Ankara as the guest of Interior Minister Nahit Mentese. While here, Dijskaal will have a round of talks with upper level ministers and then give a conference on Turkish-Dutch relations. /Cumhuriyet/

    [08] GERMAN SUPPORT FOR CU WITH TURKEY

    Provincial governor for Berlin, Eberhard Diephen, has declared that the European Union countries must soon decide on customs union with Turkey. Diephen said that the Europeans should in no way try to exclude Turkey from the European Union. /Milliyet/

    [09] FURTHER CUSTOMS UNION CONTACTS

    Turkey continues to figure prominently in the London political scene with debates about Turkey in both the Conservative and Labour party conferences now taking place at venues around Britain. Turkish Ambassador to London, Ozdem Sanberk has already attended the Labour Party conference and will now journey on to Blackpool for a Conservative Party meeting where he will again state Turkey's case. /Cumhuriyet/

    [10] NEW MOVES FOR A CYPRUS SETTLEMENT

    The US seems to be taking over initiatives for a settlement on problem plagued Cyprus. With the UN taking more of a back seat, the US is coming to the fore and is offering a new "White House package" designed to resolve the basic issues of federal government, division of land, security and military reductions, joining the European Union (EU) and temporary government until the two sides agree on all the issues. Although President of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), Rauf Denktas, is not in agreement with current efforts, the US is still trying to broker a meeting between the Turkish side and the Greek-Cypriot community led by Glafkos Klerides. The US sees a meeting between the two leaders as a key to unlocking the problem that has tied the island up for decades. /Cumhuriyet-Sabah/

    [11] 32 PKK MILITANTS KILLED

    Thirty-two militants of the PKK terrorist organization were killed during military operations by security forces in Hakkari's Semdinli and Cukurca districts. According to an announcement from the emergency rule region, 23 terrorists were killed in the mountainous area of Semdinli district and nine were killed near the village of Uzumlu in Cukurca district. The militants' weapons were confiscated. In the week between October 2 and 8, 113 militants were killed, eight surrendered and two were captured. /Hurriyet/

    [12] DECISION ON EARLY AZERI OIL EXPORT ROUTE EXPECTED TODAY

    The Azeri government and an international consortium formed to develop three Azeri oil fields in the Caspian Sea are scheduled to announce today their decision on the pipeline routes through which the "early oil" from the fields is to be exported. The options are a Russian-proposed pipeline from Baku to the Black Sea port of Novorossisysk and another from the Azeri capital to the Georgian port of Soupsa on the Black Sea. Turkey, which attaches great importance to hosting a main pipeline to export the lucrative Azeri oil in the long term, supports the Georgian option for the early oil. "Early oil" is a term used to designate the limited amount of petrol to be extracted from the three Azeri oil fields in the Caspian Sea up to the year 2000. The US supports the operation of more than one pipeline route for the early Azeri oil. /Milliyet-Hurriyet/

    [13] FT PORTRAYS TURKEY AS "ECONOMIC POWERHOUSE"

    In a very flattering special survey on world economy and finance, the Financial Times (FT) mentioned Turkey as among the "world's economic powerhouses". On an accompanying world map, Turkey was assigned the color deep red, signifying those handful of countries such as Chile, Uruguay, Spain, China and India with an average annual GNP per capita growth rate of 3 % or more. "This makes them the third wealthiest group of countries -in terms of total GNP- after the maturer economies of the US and Europe, which are growing at a rate of 1 to 1.9 % each year" FT said.

    [14] TURKISH-GREEK TRADE VOLUME REACHES 261 MILLION ECU

    Total trade between Turkey and neighbouring Greece reached 261 million ECU (European Currency Unit) in 1994, Greek trade statistics have shown. The Northern Greece Exporters' Union disclosed that 115 million ECU of the total trade volume, or 44.8 %, was Greek exports to Turkey. Turkey's exports totalled 145.5 million ECus, or 55.2 %.

    [15] AUTO INDUSTRY OUTPUT SOARS 12.4 %

    During the first nine months of this year automotive production rose 12.4 % and reached 218,267 units, up from 194,206 in the same period last year, Automotive Industrialists Associaiton (OSD) figures revealed on Thursday.
