EU's Rehn welcomes Turkey's new Kurdish opening

The EU Commissioner for Enlargement Olli Rehn welcomed Turkish government's recently launched initiative to deal with the Kurdish issue.

In a speech he delivered at the Foreign Relations Committee of the European Parliament Wednesday, Rehn said they expected Turkey to implement key reforms that would enhance the rule of law and the fundamental freedoms.

"I hope the (democratization initiative) will result in concrete action that would enhance the rights of all the Turks about culture and language and strengthen the socio-economic development of southeast Turkey," said Rehn.

Rehn also said the EU expected Turkey to take on a positive role in the efforts for an extensive solution and contribute to the optimistic political atmosphere.
