The meeting addressed issues such as the efforts to end assimilation policies towards the Kurdish language.
The Kurdish Language Platform visited Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) in Parliament. The platform was met by HDP co-chairs Pervin Buldan and Sezai Temelli.
The HDP delegation was formed by Alican Önlü, deputy co-chair of organization, Fatma Kurtulan, Group deputy chair and Imam Taşçıer, Amed MP.
The meeting lasted for an hour, and addressed issues such as the efforts to end assimilation policies towards the Kurdish language.
The Platform conveyed its demands. Taşçıer said: "The platform said that Kurdish is the second official language besides Turkish and should be also a language of education. The Platform wanted to convey its demands to the political parties in Parliament."
Taşçıer added: "The Platform asked us, as HDP, that Kurdish be treated as official language. Therefore for us the political language should be Kurdish, that is, Kurdish lawmakers should speak Kurdish. We have told the Platform that we do all our correspondence in two languages, Kurdish and Turkish, and that we will support their work."
Vists with CHP and Saadet Party
The Platform has met also with CHP leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu and today will meet Temel Karamollaoğlu, President of Saadet Party.
