HDP says will continue attempts to solve Kurdish question

Reacting to various positions on the Kurdish issue in Turkey, pro-Kurdish People's Democratic Party (HDP) said it would continue to work to resolve the issue.

The HDP announced on the occasion of the beginning of the new legislative year in Parliament that it will continue its struggle to resolve the Kurdish issue.

"In the new legislative period, we try to solve all Turkey problems, especially the Kurdish issue, and by presenting the parliament as a place to solve the problems, we will transform this institution into the people's assembly. We have the power and the will to make change," the HDP media office wrote in a post on the party's official website.

It is worth mentioning that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced on Friday during a speech to mark the beginning of the new legislative year in Parliament that there is no such thing as the Kurdish issue and that his government has already solved it.

“We have resolved the matter called the Kurdish issue, abused by all factions including terrorist groups, in all its aspects, from rights and freedoms to development,” he said. “We will also unmask those who still want to abuse this matter.”

The president’s comments follow main opposition leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu emphasizing a need to seek a solution to the decades-long conflict in the Turkish parliament.
