A speaker of a Kurdish language platform, Sherefhan Jiziri, applied to Turkish President Erdogan with a letter, demanding to give Kurdish an official status. As reported by Armenpress, Gazeteduvar news agency reports.

“The Kurdish language, which has been assimilated for 100 years, is now on the verge of extinction. As you often say, assimilation is a crime against humanity. Let us all stand against it together. Let’s fight it together. As a Kurdish language platform, we have repeatedly wanted to meet with you and AK Party leaders. Unfortunately, our efforts have been in vain,” the letter says .
