Hello,

"STATEMENT REGARDING THE PART CONCERNING TURKEY OF THE 1992 HUMAN RIGHTS REPORT OF THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE (20 JANUARY 1993)

The Turkey part of the annual report of the U.S. Department of State examining human rights situations in all countries except for the U.S. has arrived at the Turkish Foreign Ministry.

Our relevant authorities will attentively examine the claims in the report and convey our views in a detailed manner to the U.S. Department of State.

The report said that Turkey fulfills the requirements of democracy, having a multi-party parliament, effective dissidence and anti-government media. The report also noted that terrorism escalated in 1992, and emphasized that terrorist organizations led to serious and massive violations of human rights.

That being said, the 1992 report included claims about human rights violations allegedly perpetrated by security forces in Turkey. Almost the totality of these claims arises from domestic and foreign non-governmental organizations. This, first of all, shows the free movement of NGOs in Turkey, whether they be domestic or foreign. However, the inclusion of claims which lack legitimacy without sufficient inspection led unavoidably to the creation of a misleading impression.

As was acknowledged by the report, Turkey is a pluralist state of law. Turkey acceded to agreements related to human rights, and voluntarily accepted to remain committed to control mechanisms that those agreements predict. Within this framework, Turkey recognized the right of individual application to the European Commission of Human Rights and the compulsory jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights. Therefore, in case of alleged violations of human rights, the respective avenues of appeal to Turkish courts, the European Commission of Human Rights, and the European Court of Human Rights are available."

The text above is my translation of a sample text retrieved from the Turkish Foreign Ministry's entrance examination. Can you please check the English?
