The KCK, the alleged urban wing of the outlawed PKK, made the statement following media reports that some 100 militants were expected to leave Turkish soil in the spring as part of the government’s recently launched “peace process.”
The KCK added that there were no agreements on the issue.
In the statement, the KCK also called on the Turkish government to shed light on the killing of three Kurdish women in Paris.
“If the [ruling Justice and Development Party] AKP government is sincere, those who are responsible for the killing and their motivations should be explained to us and the community,” the statement added.
In the upcoming days, senior officials from MİT will hold talks with PKK officials in Arbil, the capital of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) in northern Iraq, to discuss the PKK’s “decision for no action,” the report said.
