Turkish daily newspapers covered in their Thursday editions Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's remarks at a ceremony, a clash between Turkish soldiers and terrorists killing four troops in southeastern province of Siirt, a joint statement by EU foreign ministers and an invitation by the UN-Arab League special envoy for Syria to a summit on Syria.
Almost all newspapers wrote about Erdogan's remarks at a ceremony for unveiling of Turkey's first domestically produced training jet, saying that Turkey had no intention of attacking anyone, but would teach those who dared to test the limits of its might. Papers quoted Erdogan as saying, "We will never avoid teaching a lesson to gang-run states that have no legitimacy in the eyes of their public, those who resort to state terrorism against their people." Erdogan said that they would respond to hostile attitudes against Turkey, attacks and threats in the strongest manner.
Another topic that was published in all dailies was a clash between Turkish troops and PKK terrorists in two different locations in Eruh town of Siirt, killing four Turkish troops.
"Stronger with Turkey" headlined Hurriyet daily, writing about a joint statement by foreign ministers of the EU member states. The daily quoted EU foreign ministers as saying that the EU has been facing with some economic problems and there was instability in the Middle East. "Our relations with Turkey are important now than ever before," ministers said in their statement.
Zaman daily quoted the UN-Arab League special envoy for Syria Kofi Annan as saying that the Action Group for Syria would convene at the ministerial level on Saturday in Geneva. A statement by Kofi Annan said that he has sent invitations to the foreign ministers of the five permanent members of the Security Council - China, France, the Russian Federation, Britain and the United States of America and Turkey.
