Turkey to hold fresh talks with Kurdish militants - minister

ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey will hold talks with the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militant group, Justice Minister Sadullah Ergin told reporters on Monday after the end of a hunger strike by the militants which has fuelled hopes of moves to resolve a decades-old conflict.

He did not specify when talks might be held but the state held secret discussions with the PKK leadership in Oslo in recent years.
