CHP offers panels to end conflict
BİTLİS - Anatolia News AgencyThe leader of the main opposition People’s Republican Party (CHP) Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu suggested establishing two commissions to bring the armed conflict in Turkey’s southeast to a resolution, while speaking in the southeastern province of Bitlis yesterday.
“The solution to this problem lies in social reconciliation. This problem cannot be solved by arms… [or] behind secretive closed doors,” Kılıçdaroğlu said.
The CHP leader proposed the establishment of a reconciliation commission in Parliament and another commission to travel across Turkey to communicate with the citizenry. “[This commission] will then come to Parliament and explain all this to the deputies’ commission. We founded this country together,” said Kılıçdaroğlu.
He also said that his party was the only one that could resolve the conflict. “Why should we use the language of war when we could use the language of peace,” he said.
