Drawing attention to the situation of leader Abdullah Ocalan in Imrali prison, and continued: "During the past 23 years, Mr. Ocalan has lived in a very difficult situation, as he was subjected to torture in various ways and methods and was subjected to strict isolation, and reports from Council of Europe (Committee Against Torture) confirm the fact that there is a state of emergency in Imrali prison, and Council of Europe has requested information and clarification on Mr. Ocalan's situation."

Over the past 30 years, Mr. Ocalan has repeatedly proposed solutions for peace and democracy and repeatedly called for a ceasefire and an end to violence, but Turkish state has severely isolated in Imrali, and violated all Mr. Ocalan's rights, and seeks to exterminate Kurdish people and their cause through the policies of denial, genocide, and forced displacement."

The statement explained that leader Ocalan physical freedom, the solution of Kurdish issue, and the establishment of peace and stability in Turkey and the region are all interrelated and considered among the basic conditions for the peaceful coexistence of peoples, stressing that it is "necessary for all parties to express their support and attempts for Mr. Ocalan physical freedom.
