Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Leyla Zana, an independent pro-Kurdish deputy from Diyarbakır, are expected to meet on Saturday to discuss the Kurdish issue, the Sabah daily reported on Thursday.
Earlier this month, Zana said she believes Erdoğan can solve the Kurdish issue and that she has never lost hope in him. Her statements elicited some harsh criticism from the pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party (BDP).
Zana said she does not think the Kurdish issue will be solved by appointing the military, police or judiciary with certain tasks, stating: “There is a solid fact here. Let's say this openly and accept this fact. If he wanted, the strongest can solve this issue. Who is that strongest one? It's the government and its head, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. The person who is the head of the strongest government in [our] history is able to show the willpower and have the strength to sort out this issue. I believe that he will be able to solve this issue. I have never lost my faith in him solving this issue. And I don't want to lose my faith in him. If I had lost [my faith], I wouldn't be here.”
