Cemil Bayik: An interview with Turkey's most wanted man

The BBC's Ian Pannell has met Cemil Bayik, leader of Kurdish separatist group the PKK, which is waging simultaneous conflicts against Turkey and so-called Islamic State (IS).

Mr Bayik said the PKK was open to negotiations with Turkey, but without such peace talks the decades-long conflict would continue.

He also confirmed the the PKK had had "direct" communications with the United States in the battle against IS.
