OT: Kurdish official claims Turkey fears democracy

The Deputy Speaker of the Parliament of Kurdistan, Kamal Kirkuki, has alleged that Turkey's threats to attack Kurdish rebels in Iraq's northern region were motivated by an unspoken fear of the democracy developing beyond its southern border.

Turkey has been threatening to launch cross-border operations to seek out rebels from the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), who are hiding in the rugged Qandil Mountains of northern Iraq and attacking Turkey.
