The defence Regions of Medya-Qendil Mountains: The Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) is preparing to declare “democratic autonomy” Murad Karayilan, the president of the Kurdistan Democratic Confederation (KCK), said.


“The PKK was forced to end its 6th unilateral ceasefire after Turkish state failed to declare a truce of its own. They will thus take unilateral steps to solve the Kurdish question,” Karayilan told ANF Turkish.


“If Turkish state won’t take certain steps for a solution and targets this ‘democratic autonomy, then we will have no choice but to develop a solution under the framework of democratic con-federalism,” he said.


Karayilan harshly criticised Turkish state and told that the PKK did everything on its part for the establishment bilateral truce but AKP and Turkish state are not sincere when it comes to solve the Kurdish question. Karayilan also said there is no relation between Israel naval attack to Turkish ships and PKK’s attack to the naval base at Hatay and labelled the claims “immoral”.


“The naval base in Hatay became a target for the Kurdish guerrillas after Turkish army’s recent operations,” Karayilan said.

Karayilan also warned that the guerrillas may target Turkish army in western Turkey.


The Kurdistan Worker Party (PKK) was founded in 1973 as the result of the continuous and systematic oppressions and the denial of the Kurdish nation by the occupying powers of Kurdistan. The PKK took up arm in 1984 since all the possible political and diplomatic means applied for 11 years in between 1973-84 proved exhausted. The PKK however declared its first unilateral ceasefire in 1993 since it believed the arm struggle had hit its targets. Since 1993 to date the PKK has declared 6 unilateral ceasefires in 6 different occasions and called upon Ankara to solve the Kurdish problem in a peaceful democratic way.


Despite the facts that the PKK has declared 6 unilateral ceasefires and also it sent peace groups in two different occasions yet the PKK is considered as a ‘terrorist’ organization by Ankara and the US. It also continues to be on the blacklist in EU despite the court ruling, which overturned the decision to place the Kurdish freedom movement on the EU’s terror list. “By labelling PKK as a terrorist organisation, the EU and the US are giving Turkey a green light to target its civilians. They gave the Turkish government a free hand to do what it will, a mother of Kurdish martyr said”.


It should be noted that after 1954, apart from the Korean War in1949-52 and the invasion of Cyprus in 1974, the Turkish Army operations have continued to be exclusively against the Kurds.
