§ Mr. Heathcoat-Amory
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office recently received a copy of a circular letter from the "Kurdistan Information Centre", a London-based organisation. The letter listed Kurdish Workers Party (PK K) conditions for an extension of its March ceasefire in Turkey.
We regret the PKK's decision to end its unilaterally declared ceasefire and the subsequent escalation of 19W violence in Turkey's southeast. We frequently make clear to the Turkish Government the importance we attach to combating terrorism within a legal framework and with full respect for human rights.
