Main opposition Republican People’s Party leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu said today that they were issuing the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) new credit to solve the terror problem in Turkey despite all the mistakes made in the past, daily Hürriyet has reported.
“We don’t want people killed in this country. We don’t want any of our citizens hurt. We can overcome this problem with intelligence, logic, common sense and historical accumulation,” Kılıçdaroğlu said. “Despite all the mistakes it has made in the past, we are issuing the AKP new credit. So solve the problem.”
Kılıçdaroğlu also said casualties had not been reported due to clashes with suspected members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party because it was wintertime.
“Do not think that terrorism has ended. This is the same picture we see every winter,” Kılıçdaroğlu said.
The Turkish Parliament is the only way of solving this problem, Kılıçdaroğlu added.
“We will sit and talk. We will use joint reason to solve the problem.”
The CHP leader also suggested Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan should follow an open and honest policy to solve the terror problem, adding that the government had not been following a
determined and consistent policy in the last 10 years.
