>Kurdish Leader Abdullah Ocalan: "June 15th is the Deadline for Turkey!"

>NEWSCENTRE (DİHA) – Kurdish leader Öcalan said there the unilateral ceasefire by the PKK won’t be extended after the general elections on mid-June, reported ANF.

Speaking with his lawyers during the weekly meeting in İmrali Island Öcalan said “Kurdish people must be aware of the fact that there will be no extension or cancellation about the ceasefire decision after June 15 unless the Turkish government opens the door for a negotiation”.

According to ANF’s report; Öcalan said he is expecting that AKP will start to work for a new Constitution after the general elections.

The Kurdish leader warned Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and said if the prime minister follows an oppressive politics against Kurds then he will have no choice but give up his role as a mediator and collocutor.

Öcalan said there is a danger that a large scale conflict between the Turkish army and the PKK would start and the field of this war will possibly be in the cities rather than the mountains.

Öcalan talked about the negotiations between him and the state officials in İmrali and said that there is a possibility that they can develop a comprehensive plan for the solution to the Kurdish question.

He called all Kurds to participate the demonstrations in Kurdish cities until June 15. He also voiced his support for “civil Friday prayers”.

For the alliance of leftist political parties which is led by the Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) Öcalan said the alliance is not only for the general elections but for the process which will lead to creation of a new and democratic constitution.

Indicating that Kurdish problem could be resolved through democratic means, Öcalan said the followings; “The possibility is available for the solution of Kurdish problem through democratic means. If so, if a democratic solution is developed, the ways will be paved to Turkey for all fields including economy. But otherwise, there also exist the possibility of a great war development. Our people should know this and get prepared accordingly. Here, alone, I keep my searches for peace. The position of KCK, BDP and DTK is different. As I said before, the AKP applies pressure on the people and democracy powers with the mentorship of the circle we call police academy. Here, thousands of people are arrested for trivial reasons.

Speaking about situation in Syria Öcalan said President Besar Al Assad should meet with PYD officials, the most popular political movement in Syria’s Kurdistan. Öcalan told his lawyers that Syrian regime is trying to separate the opposition forces and the Kurds by some reforms and insisted that if Syria will take steps towards democratization Kurds will support Assad.
