Hakki Suha Okay, the deputy chairman and spokesman of the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP), said CHP chairman Kemal Kilicdaroglu and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan would meet at the parliament on Thursday to discuss PKK issue.
"Upon an invitation and appointment request from Mr. Prime Minister, CHP chairman Kilicdaroglu will meet Erdogan at his office at the parliament at 11 a.m. on Thursday to exchange views on terrorism," Okay told reporters after a CHP meeting in Ankara.
