Zana: I told the PM to resume the Oslo talks
01 July 2012
Leyla Zana outlined contents of her meeting with PM Erdoğan
Independent deputy Leyla Zana has today outlined the contents of the meeting she held on Saturday with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. Zana said it is "unrealistic" to solve the Kurdish issue by asking Kurdish militants to lay down their arms.
Zana pointed out she told the PM the armed conflict is an open wound and cannot be healed by calling on the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) to lay down arms or asking the Turkish army to stop military operations.
"I told the prime minister - said Zana - that the people who asked for an apology were not the people of a foreign state but were citizens of this country."
Zana also rised with Erdoğan the possibility to transfer imprisoned PKK leader, Abdullah Öcalan to house arrest.
The Kurdish MP added she told the Prime Minister to continue the so called Oslo process (from the place where members of Turkey’s intelligence agency and representatives of the PKK held talks).
