Turkey will fight Kurds regardless of who is PM: official
The Turkish hardline policy in regard to its Kurdish population will not become friendlier irrespective of who will be the new prime minister after the resignation of Ahmet Davutoglu, Executive Committee Member of the Kurdistan National Congress Adem Uzun told Sputnik on Friday.

On Thursday, Davutoglu confirmed media reports that he would step down from the post of the ruling Justice and Development Party's (AKP) leader and consequently the post of the country's prime minister after an extraordinary meeting of party leaders scheduled on May 22.

"I think the situation is worse enough. In general, the policy of the Turkish state is not to accept the Kurds anymore, their political, fundamental and cultural organization rights… I think that it doesn’t matter if Davutoglu is prime minister or somebody else is. Erdogan will still maintain his war against the Kurds," Uzun said.

According to Davutoglu, the resignation was a necessity because of the lack of unity in the AKP leadership. He added that he would be loyal to Erdogan and would not criticize his fellow party members.
