No: 319, 16 October 2017, Press Release Regarding Demonstrations Held By The Pkk Terrorist Organization In Europe On 15 October 2017

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 16.10.2017

We strongly condemn the fact that a blind eye was turned on to simultaneous and provocative demonstrations held by the members of terrorist organization PKK yesterday (15 October) evening in various cities of Europe.

It is noteworthy that during some of these demonstrations, public buildings were raided by a terrorist organization, listed as such by the European Union. The fact that this terror organization was allowed to make its propaganda and use its symbols is a clear indication as to how PKK terrorism is gaining strength day by day in Europe. It was also able to organize these events simultaneously as a result of tolerance shown in Europe.

On this occasion, we once again remind our counterparts that taking necessary measures against PKK is of vital importance not just for the security of Turkey but for theirs as well.

We are summoning the Ambassadors of the countries where these demonstrations were held to express our reaction in view of these events.

Uğur Kenan İpek Ambassador
