The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The co-chair­man of the Peace and Democ­racy Party (BDP), Se­la­hat­tin Demir­taş, said the BDP and the Turk­ish Govern­ment met for the first round of dis­cus­sions on the Kur­dish ques­tion on June 21.

“The meet­ing was of­fi­cially aimed at find­ing so­lu­tions to the Kur­dish ques­tion. This was the first of­fi­cial meet­ing be­tween the BDP and the Turk­ish govern­ment, and it is the se­cond step to­ward solv­ing Kur­dish is­sues in this coun­try,” said Demir­taş.

The BDP and the Turk­ish Gov- ern­ment are ex­pected to hold their se­cond meet­ing next week to dis­cuss how to im­ple­ment agree­ments.

On his re­turn of the BDP del­e­ga­tion to Im­rali, where PKK leader Ab­dulla Ocalan is im­pris­oned, Demir­taş said that an­other meet­ing would be held, and that the govern­ment would sub­se­quently re­veal the con­tents of the meet­ing to the pub­lic.

The meet­ings are part of the on­go­ing Turk­ish-Kurd peace process which aims to re­solve the Kur­dish–Turk­ish con­flict.
