BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: Iraqi President Jalal Talabani stressed importance of opening dialogue between the Turkish government and PKK party to solve the Kurdish question and ending continued crises.
He pointed out that PKK leader Abdulla Oclan is the only one who can open the dialogue with the Turkish government.
Talabani suggested that Oclan should be moved under house arrest, proclamation of ceasefire, general amnesty and defining nationality in a new constitution.
The anti-Turkish PKK party is waging a war since mid of 1980s to oblige the Turkish government recognize the Kurdish rights there.
More than 40.000 casualties were reported during this period from both sides.
Turkey does not recognize any other nationality but the Turks and denied study in the Kurdish language for decades.
