Turkish Political Leader Arrested in Armenia

By Sevim AYCAN (JTW)

Tuna Beklevic, leader of the Strong Turkey Party (Guclu Turkiye
Partisi) and his aide Baybars Ozsek were arrested by the Armenian
security forces in Yerevan. Two politicians entered Armenian territory
without permission to protest the closed borders.

Armenian Secret Service forced the Turkish politicians to leave
Armenia immediately. Tuna Beklevic is known for his liberal opinions
about Armenian issue. Mr. Beklevic has made campaigns to open the
Turkish-Armenian border.

Beklevic argued that the Armenian Foreign Ministry officers were so
rude and claimed that the Armenian Government is under the control of
the third parties in border issues.

Beklevic said `we will open the border at last'.
