Turkey's prime minister Saturday called on parents to help end agonies in the Southeastern Anatolia Region.
Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan said people living within the territories of Turkey would continue to take equal share from country's resources, as it had happened for hundreds and thousands of years.
"I am calling on mothers in (the southeastern province of) Mardin to take action to end bloodshed, and I am calling on fathers of Mardin to help end agonies," Erdogan said during several inauguration ceremonies in Mardin.
Erdogan also called on all people living in Mardin to show sincerity to change the destiny of the region, and suggested that every one should support efforts to build a bright future.
The prime minister said brotherhood was boosted and national unity was gaining strength in Turkey, and defined Turkey as a more democratic country than eight years before.
"Turkey is today a country where freedoms, democratic and cultural rights, freedom of expression have broadened and where people enjoy more contemporary standards," Erdogan also said.
