HDP must force PKK to lay down arms

The co-leader of the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) in Turkey, Selahattin Demirtaş, called on Sunday for an immediate ceasefire between the PKK and the Turkish state. The pro-government daily Star says words won't be enough: "Whether these words remain nothing but a pious hope depends on the behaviour of the armed [PKK] organisation, but also on the [HDP's] political stance. If it stops blocking streets, sending men to the mountains, shooting people in their sleep, killing policemen and hindering the building of roads and dams, the military operations will also come to an end. … Selahattin, you promised Prime Minister Davutoğlu these nasty incidents would stop within a week. You didn't keep your word. … Turn your party into a civil interest group that calls on the PKK to lay down its weapons. If you really are a leader, you can do that!"
