The delegation wants to meet with Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan by going to İmralı Island.
The activity of the International Imralı Peace Delegation starts on Monday.
Before heading to Turkey the international delegation members visited the 14 Kurdish activists on hunger strike in Strasbourg for 56 days.
The delegation included former Minister of Justice and historian Ögmundur Jonasson, US philosophy student Connor Hayes, activist Diyar Kerim from England and Havin Güneşer from the Freedom for Öcalan Initiative.
Speaking here, former Icelan Minister of Justice Ögmundur Jonasson expressed his support for the hunger strikers and their action to end isolation against the Kurdish People’s Leader.
Stressing that they support the struggle of the Kurdish people, Jonasson added that the Kurdish issue and the isolation against Öcalan have been raised many times in Iceland.
Reaffirming that isolation cannot be accepted, Jonasson underlined that the hunger strikes against it are very determined and bold steps.
Jonasson said that their visit toTurkey is not just to see the issue first hand but also to run a series of meetings, first of all with the Ministry of Justice to try and get a visit with Öcalan.
