BAGHDAD/ Aswat al-Iraq: Turkish writer Murat Tikkun expected four changes in Turkey in 2013, including a drastic change on the Turkish stand on the Kurdish question.
The first expectation was in the internal front, which is connected with the Kurdish question, with the possibility of negotiations with the PKK party via its long-life imprisoned leader Abdullah Oclan.
He added that "if this is achieved, it is possible to solve the chronic problem of the country".
Tikkun expected that the two opposing Turkish parties, the Republican People and Peace and Democracy parties will participate in the solution, and to contribute in writing a "more democratic constitution".
The article was published in Hurriyet daily today.
"If the negotiations failed for the second time, Turkey will witness more violence and the government will adopt more stern stands".On the external level, the writer expected a change in Turkish-Israeli relations, depending on the apology of the new Israeli government and reducing the embargo against Gaza.
