Aktay said that though ruling AK Party launched several processes In order to establish peace and tranquility in the country in order to establish peace and tranquility in the country, the terrorist organization did nothing for the creation of peaceful atmosphere. “Though the army stopped military operations for the peace process, the terrorist organization continued setting fire to excavators, tractors, trucks, attacking hydroelectric power stations, road construction sites and kidnapping the workers. The state gives time, but doesn’t pass off. No one could have thought that this process would continue unconditionally. Therefore, the state is defending the rights of its citizens from PKK and other terrorist organizations using its legal rights within national and international law. Population in the region is now prone to believing that the terrorist organization has crossed that thin line which stands between freedom and security. From this point of view, these operations must also be considered to be a demand of the region’s population.

The MP said Turkey’s position against the terrorist organization is clear and definite:

“At a time the whole world was in a deep sleep Turkey became one of the first countries to declare ISIL a terrorist organization. Turkey has always been, still is and will always be conscious of the responsibility it is supposed to carry against an organization which threatens the citizens and borders of Turkey, global peace and tranquility, and international deals.”

Asked, “A proposal made by Russia on the ‘cooperation of Syria, Iraq, neighboring countries and Kurdish forces’ in the fight against Daesh terror, was not approved during the meeting a few days ago of the foreign ministries of Russia, the United States, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar in Doha. How would you explain that?” Y.Altay said, “Whom do they mean by ‘ground forces’? If they refer to HPG – a wing of the PKK – and other connected organizations, or illegal organizations such as MLKP, how would Turkey be expected to accept it? How could a vague target be dealt with over so many vague concepts? How can such a hazy target be fought against over such hazy concepts? If the allegations are true, Russia's proposal is intended to cooperate with the Syrian regime. How can a terrorist state, losing its legality, which killed hundreds of thousands of people, forced millions of people to flee their homes, and didn’t hesitate to use biological and chemical weapons against the civilian population share such an initiative? In case that the terrorist organizations like DAESH in the country are the results of the war crimes irresponsibly committed by the Assad regime and the crimes against humanity, no initiative intending to give legality to the acts committed by the Syrian regime can be acceptable. This can be accepted neither politically nor in terms of human values.”

He also commented on the reports that the PKK claimed to create regional canton along Kars-Ardahan-Iğdır line.

Saying that Turkey faces a terrorist organization, Y.Aktay stressed that creation of a canton or a similar situation is out of question. “The social situation in the region and Turkey is not suitable. Frankly speaking, I don’t consider very appropriate to speak about the issues of figment of imagination”, he added.
