The Kurdish leader Abdullah’s lawyers met with their client on August 7. The Legal Age Office issued a statement on the contents of the meeting.
A spokesman of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), Saleh Muslim, talked to (ANHA) about the content of Ocalan’s message.
‘Turkish state forced to allow Ocalan’s visit’
Muslim said that the Turkish state did not allow Öcalan to visit within the framework of the rule of extermination practiced against the Kurdish people. “After 8 years of isolation imposed on the leader proved that they could not separate the people from the leader Ocalan, the Turkish state adopted a diplomatic, military and political war to exterminate the Kurdish people, but it has failed. So the Turkish state is obliged to allow the leader Ocalan to put forward his ideas. The Turkish state is witnessing an internal and external crisis and all doors are closed in its face. The solution is to attack north and east of Syria. During the Turkish-American talks, it became clear that they could not make any gains through these policies, and therefore the Turkish state allowed the leader’s lawyer to visit him. The visit is positive and valuable, and this is what the Kurdish people want. ”
‘Dependence on military ways caused loss to Turkish State’
And added Ocalan’s message touched upon the history of the Ottoman Empire pointed out that the Turkish state should study its history well. The hostility that Turkey pursued between the Kurds and the Turks has always caused the loss of the Turkish state, when there is reconciliation on the basis of recognizing the Kurdish people at the time, the Turkish and Kurdish problems can also be solved. If they really want to end the war, we must not deny and marginalize the Kurdish people and resolve the Kurdish issue. So the leader Ocalan called for reading and studying history, Kurdish-Turkish relations start from Xelat and Milazgirê till the constitution was drafted in 1921, where the constitution was jointly drafted and the will of the Kurdish people was recognized and then the history of the persecution of the Kurdish people, and since then the Turkish Republic has been in a permanent and losing war.”
They must recognize the Kurdish people and sit at the negotiations table.
On the role of Ocalan in resolving crises, Muslim said: “The Kurds and the Turks have been still losing for 27 years, since the time of Turgut Ozal so far “If the Turkish state accepted the solution in that period, this war would not last another 27 years. Ozal was bold and had a solution, but the Turkish state killed him, so the leader is asking the Turkish state, is there anybody among them like Turgut Ozal who is leading the stage and can do what we are demanding? The important thing is that Ocalan leader seeks to resolve the issue through dialogue, but it is necessary to admit of the presence the opposite side, the presence of leading the dialogue. Sitting at the table of dialogue is important in order to recognize the existence of the Kurdish people
It is very necessary to remember 2013 items
Muslim also talked about Ocalan’s appeal that he could resolve the issue within a week. “It is very clear from the content of the message that the solution lies in Imrali, when Ocalan says, “We demand to live in fraternity with the peoples on this land on the principle of recognizing the Kurdish people.” He sends a message that you cannot deny the existence of the Kurdish people. He sends a message that all problems must be resolved through understanding and reconciliation. He also mentions the 10 items introduced in 2013. So far, the provisions of the Dolmabaxçeyê Convention are relied upon and can be discussed and developed. When leader Ocalan talks about a week, because he has confidence in his people, and this is confidence that grants him the power.
“We hope that the Turkish state will respond to the leader Ocalan”
Muslim noted that the issue of the Kurdish people is linked to the issue of the Middle East, “the Turkish state is blocking the solution. The position of the Turkish state and throughout history is that when the Kurdish people develop, anywhere, it begins to suppress the Kurds brutally. Now it also seeks to end the uprising in northern and eastern Syria. It is pursuing ways of extermination, whether in Afrin, Kirkuk or anywhere else. The Turkish state is the main enemy of the Kurdish people and all other peoples. The issue of the Kurdish people in any part of Kurdistan cannot be resolved unless the Kurdish people in northern Kurdistan are resolved, and this applies to northern and eastern Syria as well. If Turkey withdraws its hand from northern and eastern Syria and there are no problems, we can resolve our issues democratically and through negotiations with inside Syria and with the Syrian regime. The regime established in northern and eastern Syria is a model for the rest of the Middle East. But the party that does not allow the development of this model and resolves the Syrian crisis, in general, is the Turkish state. The issues of the Kurdish people are interrelated, and we hope that the Turkish state will come to its senses and be able to respond to Ocalan and resolve the issue through dialogue and negotiations.
