Demirta?: AKP does not want peace

Peace and Demecracy Party (BDP) co-chair Selahattin Demirta? held a press conference in the party's Amed office to speak about the so-called "democratisation package", the democratic solution process and the rumors in the Turkish press about his possible resignation.

Demirta? said that by announcing the "democratisation package", the Prime Minister has confirmed that there is no solution and dialogue process in his agenda. The package has nothing to do with the process and the government has basically ended the process in search of a democratic and peaceful solution to the Kurdish question.

BDP co-chair underlined that "It is a coward act for the government not to stand behind the process it initiated", reminding that Erdo?an strongly rejected those saying the package was associated with the negotiation process.
