The Patriotic Party Deputy Chairman and retired Intelligence Chief of General Staff İsmail Hakkı Pekin has commented on the interview with Chief of Staff Necdet Özel.
Pekin has stated that he is utterly worried about the Turkish Armed Forces’ being presented as in cooperation with the Kurdish terrorist party PKK recently.
“The army thinks that PKK has grown stronger in the region due to the recent developments and the support it receives. They are trying to legitimize PKK through ISIS. Especially, the US and UN have been propagandizing for legitimizing PKK recently. PKK is planned to be taken out of the terrorist organizations list within the frame of this project. This is a great scheme against Turkey. Chief of Staff emphasizes this point.” he stated.
