Kurdish Communities Unions (KCK) says Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) politics may trigger a new and large scale armed conflict between the PKK and Turkish state.

KCK Executive Council released a statement today warning the Turkish government of a large scale conflict. “By not taking concrete steps (to solve the Kurdish Question) AKP is following a very dangerous strategy” the statement read.

KCK said AKP is continuing operations against Kurdish politicians in the Kurdish region despite the unilateral ceasefire declared by the PKK on August and insisted that the Turkish government uses the political climate to eliminate Kurdish political parties in the regions.

“The fascist attacks against our people shows the real face and hypocrisy of the AKP” the statement read.

KCK called all Kurds to stand against the oppressive policies of AKP and hold demonstrations in Kurdish cities.

The statement reminded that the fate of the ceasefire will be evaluated in March and warned if no positive steps come from the government the Kurdish movement will have no choice but to break the ceasefire.

KCK called AKP to stop all efforts to eliminate Kurdish political parties.
