Motion text

That this House notes the ongoing conflict in South Eastern Turkey; further notes with concern reports of civilian deaths and a deteriorating humanitarian situation in predominantly Kurdish areas; notes the disproportionate use of curfews as part of the Turkish government's response to the crisis and the suspension and detention by the Turkish government of moderate Kurdish politicians who could act as key interlocutors in the peace process; understands that some people in the region have been denied access to available humanitarian and medical aid; notes with concern restrictions on access of journalists to the region to report on the conflict; and urges the Government to step up its efforts to help bring about peace and stability in the area.
