Qr-9, 26 February 2019, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Hami Aksoy, In Response To A Question Regarding The Activities Of The Pkk Elements In Front Of Council Of Europe Building

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 26.02.2019

We have warned our European counterparts with respect to the activities of the elements of the PKK terrorist organization in several European cities where they also display the PKK leader Öcalan’s posters. We have also drawn their attention to the potential of violence in these activities.

The PKK sympathizers’ recent violent activity in front of Council of Europe Agora Building on 25 February 2019 once again showed the real face of the PKK.

We condemn the fact that such activities promoting terrorist propaganda are granted permission.

It is also regrettable that some circles and media in Europe still portray the PKK activities as a campaign of the so-called ‘Kurdish activists’. This is a clear indication as to the new level of double standards.
