Last year, a peace agreement signed between the Phillipine government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and another peace agreement between FARC rebels and the Columbian government ended 40 years bloodshed in those nations.
The US is also negotiating with the Taliban after 12 years of useless war in Afghanistan. Recent peace deal and cease fire between PKK rebels and the Turkish government is another big achievement of the Tayyap Ardogan government.
Now, the jailed PKK leader Obdullah has said that the guns must be silent for peace to come to the region.
Ocalan directed all PKK fighters to stop their attacks on Turkish soil and to try to implement a road map for peace. Turkey was faced by terrorist attacks in different parts of the nations and several people lost their lives.
More than 40 thousand people have lost their lives in 30 years of conflicts between the PKK and Turkey.
Turkish forces launched several air strikes in neighboring Iraq to destroy the infrastructure of PKK fighters and to take revenge on PKK attacks, killing several Turkish people. The recent peace deal can bring vital changes to the region and can finish 30 years of conflict between the PKK and the Turkish government.
