Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan speaks during a news conference in Ankara, Turkey, Monday, Sept. 30, 2013. Erdogan has announced a package of proposals that include lifting of some restrictions on the use of the Kurdish language, as well as further steps to liberalize the wearing of Islamic headscarves. The planned reforms announced Monday were anticipated as key to the Kurdish peace process and for Erdogan’s political prospects as he faces local, general and presidential elections in the next two years.
