Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MİT) could hold talks with İmrali, where the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party’s (PKK) leader Abdullah Öcalan is in prison, if it is considered a necessary step to finding a solution to end terror in the country, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said.
  
“MİT can do any kind of move, anytime ... For example, if it's necessary to go to İmralı tomorrow, I would say to the MİT undersecretary, ‘Do what has to be done,’" Erdoğan said during his return flight from Azerbaijan, private broadcaster NTV reported today.  

Such meetings may be held if they bring a solution and should not be considered a move supporting terror, he added.
