Ankara, Aug 10 () - Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu has called on all party leaders in Turkey to “come together against terrorism,” which he described as the country’s “biggest problem.”
“Politicians who ask for votes from the people to find solutions should immediately come together for a solution to the country’s biggest problem,” Kılıçdaroğlu said via his Twitter account on Aug. 10.
The CHP head’s call came at a time of heightened tension amid rising terrorist attacks and security operations across Turkey. Scores of soldiers and policemen have been killed over the last two weeks as a result of attacks carried out by the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), and the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C).
Kılıçdaroğlu expressed his hope for a quick end to these incidents and offered his condolences to the families of fallen soldiers and policemen.
His messages came just a few hours ahead of his key meeting with Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu to discuss the state of ongoing talks to form a coalition government.
