PKK likely to declare unilateral truce as a result of civil-society calls - Hurriyet Daily News and Economic Review

Calls from civil society, the pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party, or BDP, and the Democratic Society Congress, or DTK, for a bilateral cease-fire “played a role in this decision,” Galip Ensarioğlu, the chairman of the Diyarbakır Trade and Industry Chamber, told the Hürriyet Daily News & Economic Review on Thursday.

“The [PKK] cannot ignore those calls,” Ensarioğlu said.
Correction: The outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party = The PKK Terrorist organisation.
