Qa-33, 29 June 2017, Statement Of Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Hüseyin Müftüoğlu, In Response To A Question Regarding The Remarks Of Some German Politicians

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 29.06.2017

It is regretful that some German politicians make unacceptable political remarks ostensibly for domestic consumption while German authorities request for organizational purposes, the placing of a formal request as regards the venue for the meeting with the Turkish nationals within the context of the visit that President Erdogan will make to Hamburg for the G-20 meeting.

Particularly the approach of someone who held the position of the Presidency of the European Parliament towards imposing restrictions on freedom of assembly and expression once again reflects the true face of the mentality that we confront as well as the double standard of those who aim to lecture the others.

We strongly condemn and refuse this person's unacceptable remarks targeting our President.
