Turkey DTP leader slams banning party, recalls for dialogue

Leader of the banned Democratic Society Party (DTP) said that Turkey could not resolve problems by banning political parties, adding that problems could be resolved through dialogue and logic.

After Turkey's highest legal body, the Constitutional Court announced that it ruled to close down the DTP, Ahmet Turk told reporters, "obstruction of democratic politics will deepen hopelessness. This is a fact. Despite all these, we believe that Turkey will acquire peace one day. Turkey cannot resolve problems by banning political parties. Problems can be resolved through joint understanding, dialogue and logic."

Turk said that his political party would make a statement on Saturday.
