    [05] PRESIDENT SEZER'S STATEMENT ON SECULARISM

    President Ahmet Necdet Sezer issued a message on the 64th anniversary of adoption of secularism as a principle in the Constitution. President Sezer said &quot;The declaration of the Republic, one of the most important turning points in our history, opened a new period for Turkey with the concepts of democracy, freedom and modernity.&quot; Emphasizing the importance of implementing the principle of secularism in practice as well as its recognition in the Constitution, Mr. Sezer said &quot;To interpret and implement the principle of secularism in a manner totally different from today would seriously damage the enlightenment revolution began by Ataturk. Stating the main philosophy of modernism is based upon the freedom of the individual and the right of self-determination, Mr. Sezer said, &quot;Adopting this main philosophy, Great Ataturk realized the structural transformation needed to maintain freedom for the individual by freeing him of religious restraints and encouraging the individual to use his creativity in favour of humanity as well as his own country.&quot; The President pointed out that Turkey reinforced the principle of secularism by accepting other principles of modern law, like the Civil Code, soon after the declaration of the republic. Mr. Sezer stated Turkey would never make concessions on secularism. /Cumhuriyet/ ECEVIT: &quot;I HOPE A CONSENSUS WILL BE REACHED&quot; Prime Minister Bulent Ecevit said results are being compiled from meetings with the opposition parties concerning changes to the Turkish Grand National Assembly (TGNA) by-laws. Ecevit answered journalists questions after the Leaders' Summit and said the Constitutional change package was not on the agenda. He further stated, &quot;Efforts to reach a consensus are underway and I hope positive results will be taken. Even, if we do not reach a consensus on the issue, our efforts will continue.&quot; /Aksam/

    [06] 50,000 SIGNATURES TO CHIRAC

    50,000 signatures, collected by the Ankara Club to protest the so-called Armenian genocide law, were delivered to the French Embassy in Ankara to be forwarded to French President Jacques Chirac. Ankara Club members, among whom are the Ankara deputies Sevket Bulent Yahnici, Saffet Arikan Beduk, Oguz Aygun and Zeki Celik, met in front of the French Embassy to protest the approval of the so-called Armenian genocide bill. /Turkiye/

    [07] ARMENIANS' MASSACRE TO BE MADE DOCUMENTARY

    A documentary film depicting the massacres carried out by the Armenian people will be shot by the Communication Faculty of Ataturk University. In a statement, the Deputy Dean of the Communication Faculty Assoc. Prof. Fahrettin Korkmaz said France has been grossly unfair to Turkey by approving the so-called Armenian genocide bill. Korkmaz added, &quot;As the faculty, we are preparing to shoot a documentary film in the region to explain Turco-Armenian relations as an answer to this unfair treatment. The documentary will tell everyone the realities concerning the issue.&quot; /Turkiye/

    [08] PRINCE OSMAN'S STATEMENT CONCERNING FRANCE

    Ottoman Sultan Abdulhamit the Second's grandson, Prince Bulent Osman, living currently in Paris, said, &quot;Neither the French deputies nor the French senators know the history.&quot; Additionaly Prince Osman, who was born in France, criticized the French government for not recognizing the negative results that would occur in the relations between Turkey and France. The Turkish people, who considered the French people as important friends, are now disappointed. Relations between Turkey and France had improved recently, but this law damaged the relations between the two countries greatly. Germany and the US will be those who will try to benefit from this situation most. Some groups, who do not want to see Turkey in the European Union (EU) might have used the so-called Armenian genocide bill for their purposes just as they have used the Kurdish issue in the past.&quot; /Aksam/

    [22] FROM THE COLUMNS... FROM THE COLUMNS... FROM THE COLUMNS...

    [23] WHERE IS THE LOGIC? BY SEMIH IDIZ (STAR)

    Columnist Semih Idiz comments on the statements by Germany regarding the European Security and Defense Identity (ESDI). A summary of his column is as follows: &quot;The results of the International Security Conference in Munich shows one thing clearly. Germany is insistent on forming the European Security and Defense Identity (ESDI). Germany began issuing threats when Turkey said she would exercise her NATO veto power if not included in the decision-making mechanism. German Foreign Minister Joscka Fischer, without pronouncing Turkey by name, said a veto against this formation would lead to the emergence of two different organizations. What he means is the establishment of a European Army other than NATO. In short, Fischer is really saying that, if Turkey does not accept the status we are ready to grant her, she may be totally excluded totally from collective defense. At the heart of the matter lies the EU desire to use NATO facilities within the ESDI framework. In response, Turkey is saying she will act according to each situation that arises and, will not allow ESDI to use her NATO facilities if not given a seat in the decision-making mechanism. This is her due right and a logical approach by a country with one of the strongest armies in Europe. Notwithstanding Turkey's understandable approach, Germany is acting illogically. For example former German Chief of General Staff and NATO Military Committee Chairman, General Klaus Naumann, in an interview with daily Hurriyet, said, 'Why should Turkey have the right to decide on an intervention regarding European problems? Let's say the UN recognized Europe's right to intervene in a former colonial country in Africa. Turkey does not have any interests over there.' Anyone else other than Naumann may make such a statement, but he knows Europe asked Turkey to participate in the Balkans' peace force while many Europeans countries refrained from participating. These troops were sent from Turkey's NATO forces. Moreover, both Bosnia and Kosovo closely concern both Turkey and Europe. Naumann does not remember the enthusiastic welcome accorded to Turkish troops arriving in Prizren. On the other hand, the example concerning Africa is not valid either. Naumann must have forgotten the close to two thousand Turkish troops serving in Somalia and what is more, a Turkish general headed the UN forces there. Maybe, he did not forget but conveniently chose not to remember. Today, Turkish troops and marines are patrolling an area stretching from the Adriatic Sea to the Iran-Iraq border. Turkey's military presence in the Balkans is known by all. Tomorrow she may play a similar role in the Caucasus. Where will the European Army serve? In Northern Ireland, the Basque region or Monaco? If Europe had intended to intervene in African affairs, Belgian troops would not have left the scene. Therefore, if Europeans would like to exclude Turkey, they should find logical reasons.&quot; <_ul>
