IMRALI PRISON, Turkey, -- Over the course of his weekly visit the Kurdish national leader Abdullah Ocalan set a date to end its contribution to the peace process.
From his solitary confinement in Imrali Prison, Ocalan set 31 October as the final date for Turkey to decide about the ceasefire declared by the PKK upon his call.
In his weekly meeting with his lawyers Ocalan held Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan responsible for the killing of 10 guerrillas in Hakkari, saying that this attack was a revenge for killing of an imam by the PKK.
He called the period as “Green-conspiracy” which is different from that of the classic Turkish attacks against the PKK in 1990s.
He said that unlawful killings of the past by uncontrolled contra-guerrilla were overlooked and the attacks against Kurds are coordinated from Ankara and Washington.
Ocalan said that Erdogan might have been aware of the attack against a minibus in Hakkari which killed 11 civilians before.
Ocalan also commented about the suspicious death of former President of Turkey Turgut Ozal, saying that he was killed because he wanted to negotiate with the PKK for a peaceful solution to the Kurdish problem. He said that Ozal was killed on the date he was about to talk with him.
The Kurdish national leader talked outlined the ceasefire process which was declared by the PKK and said that the international powers are still not prepared for a peaceful solution to the Kurdish Question.
From his solitary confinement he predicted that EU might shut down ROJ TV soon.
Ocalan set 31 October as the end-date for Turkey to make up their mind about the ceasefire declared by the PKK upon his call.
He claimed that he won’t intervene the war between the PKK and Turkish state and he won contribute to the process as a mediator and interlocutor.
He called the Turkish government to sit back on the table before 31 October.
Ocalan warned that a medium scale war is possible in the near future between the Turkish state and the PKK and called everyone to resist against the politics of war.
