The Turkish military will end operations against Kurdish rebels if they stop fighting, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Thursday after a Kurdish ceasefire call.

"If there are no more armed actions our troops will not undertake armed actions," Erdogan told journalists in the Netherlands after jailed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) leader Abdullah Ocalan told his fighters to lay down their arms.
