The International Press Institute (IPI) and its affiliate, the South East Europe Media Organization (SEEMO), released a statement yesterday, expressing its concerns overPM Erdogan's critical remarks on the publishing of Imrali peace process talks outlines by Milliyet newspaper.
“The job of journalists is to report on matters of public interest, which we believe include information on the potential resolution of a conflict that has dragged on for nearly three decades and claimed more than 40,000 lives," Anthony Mills, IPI Deputy Director, said.
On Saturday, PM Erdogan strongly criticized the publication by Turkish daily newspaper Milliyet last Thursday of a document purportedly written during a Feb. 23 meeting between Abdullah Öcalan and three deputies from the pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) on the prison island of Imrali.
