World Bulletin / News Desk

PKK militants have made no official declaration of any ceasefire for moment, a PKK spokesman said in response to a media report the group will halt hostilities in Turkey as part of a fledging peace process.

The mainstream Hurriyet newspaper reported on Tuesday that 100 militants from the Kurdistan Workers Party or PKK will hand in their weapons and leave Turkey as part of initial attempts to end their 28 years of conflict.

"The PKK officially has made no such declaration for the moment," spokesman Roj Welat said by telephone. "There is no such information in our hands."
