During the meeting with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Saturday, Diyarbakır Deputy Leyla Zana proposed six steps that she feels will put an end to the Kuridsh issue: transferring Öcalan to house arrest, having the state issue an apology to the Kurds, to reinstate the Oslo process, to bring an end to KCK arrests and to provide general education in Kurdish.
Taking a historical step towards finding a solution to the Kurdish issue, Leyla Zana practically defied the PKK and the BDP, critics of her recent move. Zana states, "I trust in my Prime Minister and I acted with my mind and my heart. The Prime Minister is sincere."
During the meeting with Erdoğan, Zana proposed a six-item solution: The state issuing an apology to the Kurds, education in the Kurdish mother tongue and not just as an elective, reinitiating the Oslo talks and putting an end to calls to 'drop their weapons and KCK arrests.
After the meeting, which lasted an hour and a half, Leyla Zana faced the cameras for a press conference held in the parliament. Zana was accompanied by her daughter Ruken and her two nephews that also act as her security.
