Terror supported by internal and external powers, says Turkish Deputy PM
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc on Wednesday said, "There are internal and external powers willing the terror to continue in deadlock," in regards to Tuesday night's attacks on the ruling AK Party headquarters and Turkish Ministry of Justice building.
Arinc evaluated the recent developments in a meeting held with Association of Diplomacy Journalists in Ankara.
"On one side the resolution process is ongoing. All can see that the resolution talks are successful. However, there are internal and external powers who are not pleased with the process, don't want it to come to an end and are willing the terror to continue in deadlock,"Arinc said.
Stating that the public was aware of the insulting behavior of some politicians while criticising the talks for the resolution of the Kurdish issue, Arinc said, "Those who do not want a positive result to come out of the talks for the resolution of the Kurdish issue might have carried out the attacks."
"The attacks aimed at the ruling AK Party headquarters and Turkish Ministry of Justice building could point out a DHKP-C organization. As you know DHKP-C is a terrorist organization having its ups and downs since the 1970s. We have the knowledge that the (recent suicide bomb) attack on the US Embassy in Ankara was carried out by DHKP-C. Their dynamics were turned upside down in the recent operations carried out by Turkish police in Istanbul and Ankara," the minister added.
