"No one will be able to divide Turkey," he said. "The opposition Peoples' Democratic Party is actively cooperating with the Kurdistan Workers' Party and advocates it."
Earlier, the leader of the Peoples' Democratic Party Selahattin Demirtas said that independent Kurdistan will be created in Turkey sooner or later.
Turkish media reported that a number of Turkish MPs from the opposition Peoples' Democratic Party may be deprived of deputy immunity.
