Pro-Kur­dish Demo­cratic and Peace co-chair­man, Sala­hedeen Demir­tas says that he is closely aware of the KRG's ef­forts for sup­port­ing peace process in Turkey. "The visit Nechivan Barzani paid to Turkey was for KRG's sup­port to peace process in a his­tor­i­cal pe­riod", said Demir­tas.

Dur­ing his visit to Turkey and meet­ings with Turk­ish PM Re­ceb Teyb Er­do­gan, Kur­dis­tan Re­gion PM Nechir­van Barzani met with a del­e­ga­tion of Kur­dish politi­cians in Ankara. The del­e­ga­tion con­sisted of cochair­men of (KCD) Ahmed Turk and Ay­sel Togluk, and the Kur­dish MP in Turk­ish par­lia­ment Seri Sakik.

Nechir­van Barzani in­sisted that KRG is look­ing pos­i­tively at the process and is hop­ing to reach the de­sired re­sults. "KRG is as usual ready to pledge any sup­port for up­hold­ing peace process in Turkey and we will main­tain our at­tempts", said Barzani, ex­plain­ing that they will ob­serve with in­ter­est to peace­fully solv­ing Kur­dish ques­tion in Turkey, and called on all the par­ties to ex­ploit the chance and to be co­op­er­a­tive in suc­ceed­ing the process.

Mean­while Nechir­van Barzani and the ac­com­pa­ny­ing del­e­ga­tion paid a visit to the Peace and Demo­cratic Party (BDP) Gen­eral Cen­ter in Ankara. The BDP co-chair­men Sala­hedeen Demir­tas and Gul­tan Kis­hanik, the KCD co-chair­men Ahmed Turk and Ay­sel Ogluk, the Kur­dish politi­cian Leyla Zana and the MP of Turkey Sery Sakik, re­ceived him.

Later in a press con­fer­ence, Nechir­van Barzani and Sala­hedeen Demir­tas shed light on mat­ters of their meet­ing. Barzani men­tioned that they vis­ited BDP for con­grat­u­lat­ing Newroz and dis­cussing the peace process and the at­tempts for a peace­ful res­o­lu­tion. He val­ued the im­por­tance of Ocalan's mes­sage and the Turk­ish PM's steps in peace process.

The BDP co-chair­man Sala­hedeen Demir­tas said in the con­fer­ence that they're de­lighted to meet the KRG Prime Min­is­ter in the party's cen­tral build­ing in Ankara. "In such a his­tor­i­cal time that at­tempts of peace in Tur- key are very broad, the visit of Kur­dis­tan Prime Min­is­ter and the ac­com­pa­ny­ing del­e­ga­tion is very im­por­tant to us,” said Demir­tas. He ap­pre­ci­ated the KRG Prime Min­is­ter and said that he as the Kur­dis­tan's PM can help more in suc­ceed­ing peace process and coex­is­tence of Kurds and Turks. "We're closely aware of the KRG's at­tempts to sup­port peace process,” said Demir­tas.
