Independent Kurdish state does exist, historian Haykazun Alvrtsyan told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter.
Existence of independent Kurdish state will result in Turkey’s decline, according to him. “U.S. efforts will have no success. Turkey will launch a war that will end in Iraq’s federalization. But it’s not all. National and religious issues will blow up Turkey because other ethnic communities suffering from Ankara’s yoke will follow Kurds,” he said.
Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he came out of his private meeting with U.S. President George W. Bush reassured about prospects for Turkey’s showdown with Kurdish rebels. He said he doesn’t believe that the cross-border operation will “cause troubles.”
