Ocalan warns Turkey main opposition party CHP
Turkey- 18.4.2013 – The jailed leader of Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), Abdullah Ocalan, to whom the government is negotiating for ending Kurdish conflict in the country, has warned Turkey main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP), for opposing the talks, NTVmsnbc said in a report on Wednesday.
The report said Ocalan has discussed in his recent meeting with pro- Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) deputies Pervin Buldan and Sirri Suraya Onder the stances of Turkey parties towards the talks that aim to end the Kurdish conflict that has cost more than 45000 of lives since 1984, when PKK started its armed fight against Turkey in order to carve out an independent state, something later lessened to more rights. We discussed the outlook and viewpoints of all lines. Ocalan discussed CHP stance in detail and told us the opposition party will face a big defeat in the upcoming elections if it does not back the talks, Buldan said about the meeting with Ocalan. The deputies of CHP and National Movement Party (MHP), other opposition party of the country, left Turkey Parliament hall when ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and pro- Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) voted for the formation of a parliament commission to monitor PKK withdrawal from Turkey soil, something the party stressed will not quit Turkey without.
