Message to Swedish PEN for Mehmed Uzun

Rojbaş, Dear Friends.

We remember and miss our dear member Mehmed Uzun, who was (and is) not only an important master of Kurdish Literature but also of World Literature.

On behalf of PEN Turkey, hoping that the Kurdish Language and Literature will develop freely and be known better in the world, I extend my greetings to his dear wife Zozan Uzun and to all of you. I am grateful to our sister centre Swedish PEN -dear President Ola Larsmo and all the other members- for this activity. Swedish PEN has always been sensitive in terms of human rights.

Tarik Günersel
President of PEN Turkey
