European countries eager in legalizing PKK activities: Erdogan
European countries are interested in the legalization of the activities of Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), Kanal7 TV channel quoted Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as saying on Nov.27.

The president said European countries actively support the anti-terrorist operations against the Islamic State (IS) militants, but for some reason they turn blind eye to the activities of the PKK forces.

Erdogan added that he sees no difference between the militants of the IS and the PKK.

The conflict between Turkey and the PKK continued for over 25 years and has claimed more than 40,000 lives.

The process of democratic settlement to the Kurdish problem in Turkey kicked off in 2009, following which a part of the PKK militants left the country’s territory and moved to the neighboring Iraq.
