3/19 Turkey summons German envoy over Kurdish rally in Frankfurt

Edited by walterp on . Posted in News In Brief

Turkey has summoned Germany’s ambassador to voice its anger over a Kurdish march in Frankfurt where many protesters carried symbols of the outlawed PKK. An Erdogan spokesman denounced the rally as a “scandal.” “The German ambassador was invited – was summoned – to the Foreign Ministry and this was condemned in the strongest way,” he said. Some 30,000 pro-Kurdish protesters attended the rally on Saturday to call for a ‘no’ vote in an April 16 referendum on expanding the powers of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
