Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that there was no Kurdish issue in Turkey any more.
We have overcome this issue, added Erdogan who spoke to private Kanalturk TV on Friday.
Erdogan said that there was currently a terrorism issue in Turkey, adding that they would continue to do their best to solve the issue.
Noting that the state was providing the same service both in western and eastern regions of the country, Erdogan said that it was PKK which was trying to prevent the services in eastern regions.
When asked what was the priority along Turkey-Syria border --a no-fly zone or a buffer zone, Erdogan said that no-fly zone and buffer zone were each other's complementary.
You can't declare a region buffer zone without declaring it a no-fly zone first. That is a serious risk. UN Security Council should adopt such a resolution. We don't take such a step before the Council adopts the resolution. The region should be declared a no-fly zone first, and then we can take a step for a buffer zone, said Erdogan.
He noted that there were currently more than 80,000 Syrian citizens staying in Turkey.
