Republican People's Party's 'Kurdish opening'

15 November 2010

Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu will visit Diyarbakir next week.

Kilicdaroglu's visit will be the first to the Kurdish region after he was elected leader of the main opposition party in Turkish parliament.

Kilicdaroglu will meet with Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) officials in Ankara on the second day of Aid Al-Atha. He will fly to Diyarbakir on 20th November.

He is expected to carry messages to Kurdish voters about CHP's policy change about Kurdish Question.

BDP officials said that they will welcome the leader of CHP in Diyarbakir. Kurdish mayıs Baydemir will also meet with him at the municipality office.

BPD boycotted Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's visit to Diyabakir last September.
