Emphasizing the importance of protecting the acquirements of the peace process, Rosenne said further steps should be absolutely taken.

    A call was made in France, which accepted the so-called Armenian genocide draft law, to gather the Kurdish conference. Spokesman of the Socialist Party, Vincent Peillon, wanted the International Kurdish Conference to be convened. Peillon's call caused a negative reaction by Ankara. In a statement Peillon said, &quot;Europe should intervene in the problems of the Kurdish people at all costs. Kurdish immigration began because Kurds do not have the opportunity to live in health and peace in Iran, Turkey and Iraq. The US and the European Union should take the initiative and call together an International Kurdish Conference.&quot; /Aksam/

    [14] ARMENIAN WARNING TO SWITZERLAND

    An initiative, which aims to have the claims of Armenian massacre during the World War I accepted at the First Council of the Swiss Parliament as a genocide, caused tension between Turkey and Switzerland. A statement issued by the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said if the proposal by Josef Zisyadis, a Swiss deputy of Armenian origin, is accepted, then relations between the two countries might be damaged. The statement pointed out the issue should not be used as a tool for political gains and added, &quot;Parliaments are not the fora to make subjective and groundless accusations concerning the past of another country.&quot; The Turkish side noted the issue should be left to the academic research of historians. /Turkiye/

They can only discuss the establishment of a confederation. The TGNA is not in favor of other alternatives.&quot; He added, &quot;The TGNA accepts that TRNC must be included in every platform where political decisions are to be made over the Cyprus issue.

    [32] EU SUPPORTS TOO, BUT..... BY SAMI KOHEN (MILLIYET)

    Columnist Sami Kohen comments on the recent economic crisis in Turkey and the support received from abroad. A summary of his column is as follows: &quot;Does the European Union support Turkey during the economic crisis, as the United States does? How will this crisis affect Turkey's EU membership process? In fact, the stance of the EU does not differ in essence from that of the US. In other words, Europeans support the recent decisions Turkey has made to overcome the crisis. However, the EU is keeping its distance and not making any official statements expressing clear support for the time being. No European leaders called Ankara or sent a message. Certainly, this does not mean that Europeans are not interested in what is going on in Turkey or are not concerned about the problem. An EU diplomat said, 'The EU is as concerned over the crisis in Turkey as the US is. Turkey is an important country for both the EU and the US.' However, the fact is, Europeans are not acting in the same way as the US. Regarding the effect of the crisis on the EU membership process, officials state it would have no impact on integration. On the other hand, independent circles are openly talking about such a relation. According to the Center of European Political Studies (CEPS) Director Michael Emerson, this crisis will delay Turkey's membership process and will decrease the momentum achieved recently. The British daily 'The Times' sees the crisis as an obstacle on the path to enter the EU, 'The Guardian' states the crisis has dealt a severe blow to Turkey's request for membership. Both the EU and Turkey are continuing their studies regarding EU membership. Yesterday, the EU Council approved the framework agreement. In Ankara, the National Security Council debated the National Program's chapter on security. This Program is expected to be announced on March 8. However, the real issue will begin after all these formalities are completed and the contents of the National Program are enforced. As long as the tremors in the economy continue, Turkey will find herself far behind the EU standards. In other words, Turkey has to conform to the EU's economic criteria as well as the political criteria. If she cannot succeed in this, the EU may easily say Turkey is not ready economically to enter the Union. The US has given moral support. Certainly, this has a psychological effect and is an important contribution. The influence of Washington on the IMF and the World Bank is known by all. However, the US is also conveying the message that it is Turkey's problem to rectify the problems in the economy. The path to overcome these problems does not pass from seeking help from the US or Europe. Both the US and Europe are giving the message that only Turkey can solve the problem. She has to carry out the necessary political and economic reforms and she should not expect a saviour from abroad. Turkey has to rely on herself to correct matters. <_ul>
