Diyarbakır (Kurdish: Amed‎, Armenian: Տիգրանակերտ, lit. 'Tigranakert'; Assyrian Neo-Aramaic: Amedi or Amedu‎,Syriac: ܐܡܝܕ‎, romanized: Āmīd) is the largest Kurdish-populated city in Turkey. Situated around a high plateau by the banks of the Tigris river on which stands the historic Diyarbakır Fortress, it is the administrative capital of the Diyarbakır Province of south-eastern Turkey. It is the third-largest city in Turkey's Southeastern Anatolia Region, after Şanlıurfa and Gaziantep. Diyarbakır has been a main focal point of the conflict between the Turkish state and various Kurdish separatist groups, and is seen by many Kurds as the de facto capital of Kurdistan. The city was intended to become the capital of an independent Kurdistan following the Treaty of Sèvres, but this was disregarded following subsequent political developments. Wikipedia ->
