The Peace Committee of Turkey, the Greek Committee for International Détente and Peace, and the Cyprus Peace Council successfully held their 8th trilateral meeting on 15-17th December 2017, in İzmir, Turkey under the auspices of the World Peace Council.

Israel’s intervention in the ongoing tensions in the Middle East has intensified again recently. Frequent bombings of Syria, the attempts to escalate the tension with Iran and similar interferences have come to the fore more often.

The U.S. President Donald Trump’s declaration to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is in parallel with such developments.

Blood policies must be abandoned

Around a hundred people lost their lives and many more were injured in a bomb attack that took place in Ankara, Turkey, before the demonstration that bore the slogan "Against War, Peace Now". This attack aims at terrorising not only the demonstrators but the whole society. The perpetrators try to make our people accustomed to terror and violence. Their aim is to make the people feel desperate and thus stay away from the streets.

On May 29, video footage of ammunition transport to the Islamist groups in Syria by the Turkish secret service agents was published. The Peace Association of Turkey made a statement regarding this footage.

1000 mortar projectiles, 1000 shells, 50,000 machine gun bullets, 30,000 heavy machine gun bullets!

We were not surprised, because it was not necessary to guess; we knew it.
