Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has cancelled his planned talks with Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) officials, the premier's office announced Saturday.
"Contrary to the public opinion created by HDP, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu never planned to discuss the country’s resolve to fight terrorism with HDP. The counterterrorism process is not a matter of bargain," the office said in a written statement.
Accusing HDP officials of "not having political maturity to use politics to solve problems" and "making polarizing statements", the premier's office said that party officials had left no room for dialogue.
Davutoglu was scheduled to meet HDP officials on Dec. 30 as part of negotiations with opposition party officials on the country’s new proposed constitution as well as budget-related issues.
The premier is scheduled to meet Republican People's Party (CHP) on Dec. 30 and the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) on Jan. 4.
