    The National Security Council (MGK), in its meeting two days ago, voted to remove the threat of the "extreme right" from what is popularly known as the "secret constitution," or the National Security Political Document (MGSB). When it was first accepted in 1997, the MGSB identified certain right wing, nationalistic factions in Turkey as a threat to national security and well-being.

    In the renewed version of the MGSB, it is only the extreme left which remains identified as a threat to Turkish national security, along with reactionary, divisive terror groups. New space has also been given in the MGSB to "terror groups using religious motifs," a clear reference to groups like Al Qaeda. The PKK and the Hizbullah are also mentioned by name in the document.
