HDP Group chairs Pervin Buldan and İdris Baluken have returned to Turkey after meeting KCK officials in Kandil.
"We had a 5 or 6 hour meeting in Kandil at which we evaluated the meetings we had had with Mr Öcalan on 1 and 9 June. We then assessed the meetings we had had with the government.
The KCK wants concrete steps to be taken and laws to be passed before parliament goes into recess. They do not want the plight of sick prisoners to be used as a bargaining ploy and they want an end to the construction of military bases.
The setting up of a monitoring committee is also on the agenda, as you know. The KCK said that if such a body had existed the incidents in Lice would not have occurred.
Buldan added that they had discussed capture of Mosul by ISIS, saying: "Kandil considers this to be an attempt to throttle Kurdish revolution in Rojava and underlined the importance of Kurdish unity."
Buldan said that they had discussed the distortions of the media, that has tried to suggest there are problems between Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan and the PKK. She added: "The KCK emphasised that they are fully behind the process and Mr Öcalan. They said they saw us a negotiating delegation and considered the HDP's visits to Imrali to be important."
