Turkmen Insist on 3 Issues

By M. Alihan Hasanoglu Published: Friday, July 22, 2005
Turkmen have insisted on three issues to be included in the new Iraqi Constitution. They demand Turkmen to be accepted as the main component, the Turkmen language be accepted as the official language and Kerkuk (Kirkuk) be given a special status. Turkmen said they will boycott the constitution if their demands are not fulfilled.
