On Monday, October 12, 2015, Cemil Bayik, Vice-Chairman of Kurdistan’s Workers Party (PKK), told France Press in a statement that the ceasefire between the Kurdish forces and Turkey is to help People’s Democratic Party (HDP) win in the elections, and to show our intention that we choose peace over chaos.
Cemil Bayik said that we announced the ceasefire so HDP, which represents the majority of the Kurds in Turkey, be victorious in the elections. However, the ceasefire shows a good will against the peace that AK Parti refused to make. We believe that war only fills the graveyards, nothing more.
He continued, majority of these complications are due to the national regulations, in which up till now they have not removed the PKK from terrorists list. If they have removed PKK from the list, Turkey would have been interested in solving the problems that the Kurds have in Turkey.
He added: Ministry of Defense of Turkey lies that they have killed 750 Kurdish fighters till now. The truth is they have been able to kill only 70 of our fighters from the beginning of the battle till now.
