    Summary of the political and economic news in the Turkish press this morning

    [01] GERMANY: PKK CRIMINAL GROUP, NOT TERRORIST

    As Ankara investigates recent German remarks made on Tuesday by Federal Chief Prosecutor Kay Nehm that PKK is no longer to be classified as a "terrorist organization" in Germany, the German Interior Ministry immediately announced it had no intention of lifting the ban against the outlawed organization. He said it appeared that the PKK had renounced an earlier strategy which led to be repeated arson attacks on Turkish targets within Germany, and so could now only be classified as a "criminal organization."

    Ankara was suprised by the prosecutor's earlier statements and called on the embassy to investigate the exact context in which the remarks was made. However, an announcement followed by German Interior Ministry spokesman Detlev Dauke said the bans for the PKK still remain. /Hurriyet and all papers/

    [02] BILICAN AND PARRIS MEET TO DISCUSS IMMIGRATION

    Head of the Security Department Necati Bilican said Turkey and its close ally the United States have enchanced cooperation in fighting drugs smuggling, terrorism and organized crime, during a courtesy visit by the new U.S. Ambassador Marc Pariss. Bilican said, "Turkey and the U.S. have had security relations since 1968. We are going to discuss all organized crime-related issues, including the immigration issues." /All papers/

    [03] TURKISH SAILORS RECEIVE NEW FRIGATES IN S.CAROLINA

    Three Perry class decommissioned U.S. frigates were long last transferred on Monday to Turkish sailors at the port of North Charleston, South Carolina. In a ceremony attended by Turkish military and naval attaches and Turkish crews, Turkish ambassador to Washington Nuzhet Kandemir addressed those invited, assuring that the modernization of the Turkish navy through such acquisitions was 'solely defense related and not aimed at threatening any other country whatsoever." The acquisition of the frigates would also strengthen the bonds of alliance and common purpose Turkey and the U.S. shared as NATO members, Kandemir said. /Hurriyet - all papers/

    [04] TURKEY WARNS TALABANI ABOUT PKK

    A delegation of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) is paying an official visit to Ankara to discuss developments within the framework of the Ankara Process aiming to establish peace and stablity in Northern Iraq.

    In Germany, a building, where a Turkish family lived, was burned down. Police declared that they did not know how the fire broke out.
