Kurdish politicians set for talks in United States
ANKARA - Hürriyet Daily NewsThe co-chairs of the Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) will visit the United States for meetings with officials and civil society, to try to build support for their position on the Kurdish conflict.
“The U.S. approach on the Kurdish issue has been based on unilateral information from the government. They should see the other side of the coin and lend us an ear as well,” sources close to BDP co-chair Selahattin Demirtaş quoted him as telling his aides.
During the April 22 to 29 trip, Demirtaş will be accompanied by BDP co-chair Gültan Kışanak, BDP lawmaker Nazmi Gür as well as independent deputy Ahmet Türk, who heads the Kurdish umbrella organization, the Democratic Society Congress (DTK). The delegation is expected to visit several cities.
