WorldTurkey summons French, German envoys over rallies by supporters of PKK

Ankara (The Times Groupe)- The Turkish foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Tuesday that Ankara summoned the envoys of France and Germany to lodge a protest against recent demonstrations by PKK supporters in both countries.

Speaking at Anadolu Agency’s Editors’ Desk at the agency’s headquarters in the capital Ankara, Mevlut Cavusoglu said: “We have summoned both ambassadors to the ministry … Our missions in those countries (France and Germany) have also made contacts.”

In a diplomatic note handed to both envoys, Mevlut Cavusoglu emphasized not to allow such demonstrations to be repeated.

As Cavusoglu announced, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will be visiting Turkey on June 8 with a military delegation.

Cavusoglu said a humanitarian corridor for ships carrying food will be among the topics for discussion during Lavrov’s visit to Turkey.

Additionally, he said that bringing Ukrainian and Russian sides to the negotiating table is possible, even at the level of leaders as part of Turkey’s “negotiation efforts.”
