Turkey's military: no talks with Kurdish rebels

Turkey's military has indicated it backs government efforts to grant more rights to Kurds but opposes negotiating with Kurdish rebels.
In a statement posted on its Web site Tuesday, the military also says it rejects any moves that would harm Turkey's unity or make Kurdish an official language.
The government is seeking support for yet to be announced plans to end the country's 25-year-old conflict with Kurdish rebels. The rebels are also expected to reveal their own plan for peace.
Opposition parties have strongly criticized the peace efforts accusing the government of making concessions to terrorists.
