The government and opposition of Turkey made mistakes in the plan envisaging a democratic solution to the Kurdish problem, said the leader of the Turkish Seadet Party, Numan Kurtulmush.
"The government and opposition of Turkey made mistakes in the plan envisaging a democratic solution to the Kurdish problem," Kurtulmush told Trend by telephone from Ankara on Nov. 9.
At the meeting of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that, despite anything, the AKP will solve the Kurdish problem in the country.

The head of government said that the meeting was positive and the settlement of the Kurdish problem will enter an active phase in the near future.
According to the DTP leader, Türk, the meeting initiated a dialogue between the parties. Turkey's key opposition leader, Deniz Baykal also believes that the authorities are negotiating with people who promote terrorism in the region. On Aug. 13, the Turkish Interior Minister, Bashir Atalay also met with Türk.
Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party (JDP) and the terrorist Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) have the same thought, leader of the Turkish opposition National Movement Party (NMP), Devlet Bahceli said at a news conference earlier.
"It is impossible to win terrorism without combating it," Deniz Baykal, Leader of the Republican People's Party (CHP), said to news conference.
A total of 26 PKK terrorists have left the Mahmur terrorist camp in the northern Iraq upon the imprisoned PKK terrorist organization Leader, Abdullah Ocalan's request. The terrorists surrendered to the police. The government expected around 150 PKK members to surrender to Turkish security forces, Turkish Interior Minister Bashir Atalay said. The terrorists walked across the Iraqi-Turkish Habur border gate, where they were met with solemn with the PKK flags. The Turkish opposition has protested this. The terrorist were released after interrogation.
The PKK (Kurdistan Workers Party) terrorists from the Mahmur terrorist camp in the northern Iraq should not be met with solemn, Head of the Turkish Armed Forces General Staff, Ilker Bashbug said. The plan on democratic solution of the Kurdish problem will be discussed at the Parliament of Turkey on Nov. 10.
According to Kurtulmush, four months have passed since the submission of the plan, but the government has not taken any concrete steps or disclosed in what form it will act.
"Unfortunately, opposition Nationalist Movement Party and the Republican People's Party are also against the solution of this problem," he said.
According to him, the pro-Kurdish DTP expressed the need of imprisoned PKK terrorist organization Leader, Abdullah Ocalan's participation in the discussions, pointing out that the party is interested in solving this problem.
"Unfortunately," the plan of a democratic decision "has not yet been discussed in parliament", - said Kurtulmush.
