The KCK Executive Council Presidency assessed the general session regarding the Kurdish issue in the Turkish Parliament in a written statement. The AKP has dealt with the issue from an ambiguous position said the KCK and added, ‘‘there is an attempt to escape the problem in this approach, not to solve it. The Kurdish issue cannot be solved without recognising the will of the Kurdish people and without beginning a dialogue and negotiating with its representatives. To say that Turkey will democratise without solving the Kurdish issue is a deception.’’
Although it had not been named as such, the KCK characterised the discussion of the Kurdish issue in Parliament as an important development.
The KCK summarised the attitudes of the parties in Parliament as follows: ‘‘The AKP government brought the issue to parliament under the heading of ‘the national unity project’ and have not understood or addressed the essence of the problem; they have repeated what they have been saying for the last 6 months. All the parties apart from the DTP have repeated their positions on the issue and none of them have revealed a tangible and viable plan for solving this problem. The speeches made especially by the AKP, characterising the solution process as being open ended and without laying anything tangible on the table, has dealt with the issue from an ambiguous position. However, the issue does not have an ambiguous character and has reached a point where a solution is imposing itself.’’
The KCK Presidency emphasised that the AKP’s ostensible approach was a ploy to delay a solution and described Prime Minister Erdoğan’s speech as being aimed at gaining votes and popularity. The AKP had said that they would unveil their project in Parliament, but it has been seen that they do not have a solution, said the statement.
The KCK deemed the AKP’s aggressive and hostile attitude towards the Kurdish people and their representatives as being proof of the AKP’s unwillingness to solve the issue. According to the KCK, the CHP’s statements legitimising the Dersim massacre are also a part of the annihilation plan. By using the AKP, the Turkish State is attempting to present a friendly face to the Kurdish people, but by using the CHP they are threatening thm. The statement described the massacre mentality (of the CHP) as similar to Hitler’s fascism.
