Turkish government is about to complete a legal framework on a "solution process" to end terrorist activities carried out by the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Besir Atalay has said.

In an official visit to Bucharest, the capital of Romania, Atalay said on Tuesday that a framework of law had been largely completed and would soon be presented to the Turkish parliament.

Turkey's "solution process" began early last year with a ceasefire between the Turkish government and PKK terrorist organization.

The government pledged democratic reforms to empower minorities, particularly the Kurdish people - by far Turkey's largest minority, representing 18 percent of the population.

Regulations that would officialize the solution process were seen as a further guarantee on permanent peace by pro-Kurdish political circles in Turkey.
