The Turkish authorities will bring light on arrest of the terrorist Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) leader, Murat Karayilan, CNN Turk reported quoting Turkish Defense Minister Ismet Yilmaz as saying today.

"The Turkish government will publicize an official statement on Karayilan's arrest and sudden statements should not be made in this regard," he noted.

Turkish media earlier reported that Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc declared that Kurdistan Workers' Party leader Karayilan have been arrested in Iran, but released after negotiation.

Meanwhile, the local media have repeatedly reported about the arrest of the second man in the leadership of the terrorist PKK.

The conflict between Turkey and the PKK, which has continued for more than 25 years, put an end to lives of over 40,000 people. PKK is recognized as terrorist organization by the UN and the EU.
