"No amnesty" headlined daily TURKIYE over the rumours of a possible general amnesty for PKK terrorists as part of the government's efforts to end the decades-long terror problem in Turkey. "I don't have the authority to forgive the killer" headlined daily HURRIYET referring to the words of the Turkish prime minister "If a man committed a crime against the state, the state may pardon him. But, if a man killed a man then the state does not have the authority to pardon the killer."
Erdogan also emphasized his determination in regards to ending terrorism and establishing peace. "We will put the full stop" headlined daily MILLIYET referring to Erdogan's speech where he said, "How much more will we endure our children dying- Our people and we will say the final word in the peace process. We will put the full stop. We will get rid of the shackles together."
