TURKISH PRESS REVIEW ON MARCH 11

The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.

All of the Turkish dailies covered Turkish President Abdullah Gul's statements in regards to talks on resolution of Kurdish issue on his way to Sweden. "PKK should show sincerity" headlined daily MILLIYET, referring to the words of Abdullah Gul who stated that the government was taking well-intentioned steps, the majority of public was supporting the talks with terrorist PKK and now it was time for PKK to show sincerity, leave their weapons and avoid turning the release of public servants into a propaganda. "Three conditions from Gul" headlined daily HURRIYET over disarming, avoiding propaganda and not carrying out psychological activities. "No excessiveness to take place in Newroz" headlined daily YENI SAFAK where Gul defined the talks on resolution of Kurdish issue as "well intentioned" and "sincere" and said there shouldn't be any propaganda especially under the name of Newroz.

Another topic covered by all dailies was the blaze in an apartment in south western Germany, killing seven Turkish children and their mother. "Turkish family perished" headlined daily HURRIYET, "Fire in Germany, again" headlined daily YENI SAFAK, "New Solingen-" headlined daily VATAN over the fire where seven children with the youngest being a 6-month-old toddler died during their sleep. The brother of the mother, the grandmother and one of the children survived the fire which raises suspicions of a neo-Nazi attack reminding of the previous fire in Solingen, where German police claimed the fire could have started from an electric malfunction in the building that used to be a leather factory in Stuttgart, according to the dailies. Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag demanded a thorough and transparent investigation into the incident and expected German authorities to find the real cause of the fire that would leave no doubt, according to daily ZAMAN.
