Solution of Kurdish problem cannot be achieved by military: CHP leader
AA PhotoTurkey’s Kurdish problem cannot be solved solely by military means, but with consensus and “brotherhood,” Republican People’s Party (CHP) head Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu has said.
Speaking at a party meeting during his election campaign trip in Europe on Sept. 25, Kılıçdaroğlu said the issue could not currently be resolved because politicians have “endorsed the case to the military.”
“The problem can only be solved with public consensus, solidarity, and brotherhood,” the CHP leader added.
Kılıçdaroğlu recalled his party’s road map presented to the government on the Kurdish issue after he assumed his post as the main opposition party leader in 2010, but the reply was that the government alone would bring about a solution.
The CHP leader claimed that the Justice and the Development Party (AKP) is an obstacle to finding a solution to the problem.
After the June 7 election, the AKP aimed to go an early snap election “just out of ambitions to be the single-party government. It was then that the terrorist acts started,” Kılıçdaroğlu said, also remarking on how the AKP has repeatedly suggested that trouble has resumed because it was unable to form a strong single-party government.
“They tell citizens ‘vote for me otherwise you will have to deal with this kind of trouble,’” the CHP leader said, calling on voters to reject this AKP imposition.
