    75 Parliamentarians out of 340 AKP parliamentarians are Kurds.
    In August 2005, during a keynote speech in Diyarbakir, the unofficial capital city of the Kurdish area, the prime minister publicly admitted that the state had made mistakes in its relations with the country's around twelve million Kurds. "The Kurdish problem is everyone's problem and mine in particular," said Erdogan at the time.

    He stated that as long as the idea of belonging to the Turkish nation was accepted as a main identity, individuals were free to develop their own sub-identity.
    (...)
    According to government information, billions of euros have flowed into the southeast of the country in recent years.
    In cities like Diyarbakir, this funding (...) have resulted in the establishment of small islands of prosperity.
    (...)
    Erdogan succeeded in capturing the greatest number of seats in the Kurdish areas of southeast Anatolia, coming ahead of all the other parties, including the pro-Kurdish Democratic Society Party (DTP)
    (...)
    In Turkey's southeast provinces, the country's central Kurdish region, Erdogan's party won almost 52 percent of the votes – some five percentage points higher than the national average. In Diyarbakir, the AKP improved upon its 16 percent vote in 2002, winning 41 percent this time.

    40 Ski centers for South-East Turkey's youth

    (...) to keep Kurdish youths from joining rebels in the mountains of south-eastern Anatolia, the Turkish government has come up with an original idea: teach them how to ski.
    Up to 40 centres for skiing and other winter sports will be opened in the snow-rich region
    (...)
    Other legislative plans announced by the government include the establishment of a new, independent human rights body, a new institution for the prevention of discrimination against members of minorities like the Kurds, and the foundation of a committee charged with investigating complaints from citizens against the security forces. Mr Erdogan argues that the changes will benefit everyone in Turkey, not just the Kurds, and will strengthen democracy.

    CHP is the founding party of Turkey.
    It probably will be next government of Turkey.
    CHP has new Party leader since 22 May 2010.
    He is of Kurdish origin.

    Keep trying ekrem. Maybe someday you'll convince some idiot that the Turks aren't a bunch of warmongers hell bent on destroying the Kurds.

    Really? Look what KRG-President Barzani says to your claim:
    Press release from KRG

    Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG)

    It's not USA that has brought prosperity and feeds the people giving them work.
