UEL member M Kürkçü – Turkey at the crossroad

Ertugrul Kürkçü (Turkey, UEL), referred to the situation in Turkey and urged to draw the attention on the next PACE mission due to observe the next elections that he described as “crucial”. If Europe and the United States see Turkey only as an auxiliary country in their war in Syria “we all know what the result will be”. That is why he called on the Assembly to pay the greatest attention to Turkey’s civil society and democratic institutions during the struggle of the 1 November elections.
