While Turkey actively supports ‘moderate’ terrorists of the Free Syrian Army on the Syrian territory, the country’s Deputy Prime Minister teaches Europe that terrorists cannot be divided into good and bad ones.
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus believes that Europeans must realize that terrorists cannot be divided into good and bad. The statement was made during a roundtable discussion in the Anadolu news agency.
According to the Turkish Deputy Prime Minister, covering and patronizing terrorists of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), European politicians themselves will eventually face serious consequences. “There are already enough examples. It is enough to remember the attempted assassination of former Prime Minister of Sweden, Olof Palme, who was considered to be one of the strongest adherents of democracy in Europe, a moderate-minded politician. He died at the hands of PKK terrorists. In this way, we are dealing with a terrorist organization that is capable to orginize attempted assassinations of European politicians in the heart of Europe,” Kurtulmus said.
He also noted that there is an increase in neo-Nazism, racism and neo-fascism in Europe. The diplomat stressed that he was talking about Europe, which shift off a heavy load of the fascist regimes of Hitler and Mussolini in the recent past.
“The history of modern Europe, especially the period between the First and Second World Wars, is full of bloody pages. The main reason for bloody crimes is radical nationalism,” Kurtulmus added.
The Turkish Deputy Prime Minister also noted that the authorities of several European countries, who banned speeches of Turkish ministers and deputies, at the same time, approved demonstartions of PKK terrorists, as well as of opponents of the constitutional referendum in Turkey. “It is very difficult to understand such a position,” Kurtulmus said.
He condemned attempts of the authorities of a number of European countries to hide participants of the coup attempt that took place in Turkey on July 15, 2016.
“Such an approach is unacceptable and fundamentally erroneous. In this way, Europe openly help bandits, the gang of Fethullah Gulen (FETO). This is unacceptable for Ankara. Friendly relations with Turkey require a prompt extradition of all FETO members, hiding in Europe, to Ankara,” Kurtulmus stressed.
