Demir­tas: PKK not in­volved in at­tack on Canoglu

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Af­ter sev­eral un­known armed indi- vid­u­als attacked Canoglu, a vil­lage in Tur­key, a num­ber of po­lit­i­cal par­ties rushed to blame the Kur­dis­tan Work­ers Party (PKK) for the at­tacks. In re­sponse to th­ese ac­cu­sa­tions, Se­la­hat­tin Demir­tas, co-chair­man of the Peace and Democ­racy Party (BDP), said the PKK would never make a mis­take of that sort, es­pe­cially at this stage in the peace process. “The PKK and Tur­key al­ways wanted a cease­fire and an end to the fight­ing. But other peo­ple who do not like peace have started to con­spire against the Peace Process. The Canoglu at­tack is an at­tack on the Peace Process,” said Demir­tas

He re­it­er­ated that the PKK is not be­hind the at­tacks, and knows full well that com­mit­ting mis­takes like that would mean the end of the PKK.
