Turkey's Presidential spokesman has strongly condemned German authorities

Turkey's Presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin has "strongly" condemned German authorities for allowing terrorist PKK followers to march in the city of Frankfurt.

AVRUPA /LONDON-In a written statement, spokesman Kalin said it is ''not possible to explain for German authorities to claim that Turkey's elected representatives' meeting with their citizens is dangerous, but treating terrorists as legitimate actors.'' "It is clearly supporting terrorism," Kalin added. "Those, who try to explain this hostile attitude with freedom of expression and assembly, should act seriously." The presidential aide said some European countries, considering with what happened in Frankfurt on Saturday, "try to interfere the referendum that will take place on April 16 in Turkey and took up a position in favour of 'No' vote."

"We once again remind European countries that Europe will not decide in April 16, Turkish nation will."

Turkey Condemns Germany Allowing Terrorist PKK Rally

On the other hand, Turkey's Foreign Ministry on Saturday evening has condemned Germany for allowing terrorist PKK followers to march in the city of Frankfurt.

In a written statement, the ministry said it is a "thought-provoking case" within the scope of fight against terrorism that Germany -- which recognizes PKK as a terrorist group -- allowed symphatizers to use PKK symbols and its jailed head Abdullah Ocalan's posters during the marching.

"We condemn this insincere attitude," the ministry said, adding that Germany's envoy in Ankara has been informed about the discomfort on the issue.
