CHP calls for im­prov­ing pol­icy against Kur­dish ques­tion

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The Turk­ish CHP Party has pre­pared a re­port on the peace process and progress made in solv­ing the Kur­dish ques­tion in Turkey. The re­port asks the Turk­ish govern­ment to dis­solve the rule of safe­guard­ing Kur­dish vil­lages.

“The Kur­dish peo­ple are not happy with the CHP’s pol­icy on the Kur­dish ques­tion, so the CHP has to re­con­sider this pol­icy. CHP mem­bers have to visit Kur­dish vil­lages more of­ten and re­spond pos­i­tively to their is­sues,” the re­port states.

The re­port has asked the Turk­ish govern­ment to dis­solve the rule of safe­guard­ing Kur­dish vil­lages, and has also asked to es­tab­lish fac­to­ries in Kur­dish vil­lages.

The govern­ment’s uni­lat­eral ap­proach and slow pace is al­ready threat­en­ing the process, just as its ef­forts have be­gun to bear fruit in es­tab­lish­ing a di­a­logue that may lead to more sub­stan­tive ne­go­ti­a­tions.

The CHP is call­ing on the govern­ment to im­ple­ment Kur­dish re­quests by help­ing Kurds to study freely in their own lan­guage.

In De­cem­ber 2012, the Turk­ish Premier au­tho­rized in­tel­li­gence of­fi­cers to start talks with Ab­dul­lah Ocalan, the jailed leader of the Kur­dis­tan Work­ers’ Party (PKK) with a view to bring­ing to an end three decades of un­rest in which more than 40,000 peo­ple have been killed.

Turkey’s much-vaunted Kur­dish peace process has been through a tough few months. Be­set by mount­ing risks, both sides have ac­cused the other of fail­ing to honor pledges as they come un­der in­creas­ing pres­sure from their con­stituen­cies to take a tougher stance.
