TARAF – 25.8.2013 – The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) warned it would suspended its ceasefire if Turkey would not announce its plans to meet the demands of its Kurds, Taraf daily said.
“Erdogan’s (Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan) government should prove it will meet the demands of the Kurds. Mistrust between the Kurds and the government has grown deeper in the recent weeks,” PKK leading council chief Cemil Bayik said, warning that PKK will make new decisions if the government does not announce its plans to “change the political and democratic atmosphere” of the country. “We are not mulling armed fight yet, but have other alternatives, including stopping withdrawal process, suspending ceasefire agreement and bringing all Turkey Kurds into the streets,” he said about PKK plans if the peace talks do not meet their demands. He further said Ankara should establish an 8- part commission to complete its peace project.
