TUR03. Istanbul (Turkey), 28/02/2015.- A handout picture provided by Prime Minister Press Office shows Deputy Prime Minister Yalcin Akdogan addressing the media after a meeting with Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) lawmaker Sirri Sureyya Onder (not pictured) in Istanbul, Turkey 28 February 2015. Adullah Ocalan, the jailed leader of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) called for the organization to disarm after more than 30 years of conflict with Turkey, according to a statement read out by his representatives on 28 February. Ocalan, in jail since 1999, has been holding peace talks with the Turkish government in recent years in an effort to resolve the conflict. Many Kurds in Turkey say the state has systematically discriminated against them over the decades.
