Turkish premier said on Monday Turkey was going through a very sensitive process in regard to "democratic move" of the government (aiming to find a solution to Kurdish issue) and they were very close to a solution now than ever before.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan partook in a fast-breaking dinner to be hosted by his ruling Justice & Development (AK) Party in Ankara in honor of ambassadors of foreign countries.
"Democratic initiative process we launched within the scope of 'National Unity Project' has been advancing well. We aim to solve the problem which has continued in East and Southeast Anatolia regions for 25 years within the scope of democracy, law and human rights," he said.
Erdogan said his government has fulfilled important reforms to reduce differences among regions of the country and to boost economies of undeveloped regions of Turkey.
"Interior minister has been holding talks for nearly one month. He listens to views and notes them. We recorded great progress on the initiative of the government," he said.
Premier Erdogan said some opposed this process, but AK Party was determined to complete the project.
"11 Turkish soldiers have died in last two weeks when they were fighting against terrorists. Some try to obstruct the democratic move process. We are passing through a sensitive process. We are close to a solution now than ever. We are resolute to complete the process. We aim to end bloodshed and tears," Erdogan said.
