No: 290, 8 October 2019, Press Release Regarding The Conferral Of Abdullah Öcalan, The Leader Of The Pkk Terrorist Organization, With Honorary Citizenship By The Town Council Of Berceto, Italy

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 08.10.2019

We strongly condemn the conferral of Abdullah Öcalan, the leader of the PKK terrorist organization, with honorary citizenship on 5th October, 2019 by the Town Council of Berceto, a town in the Parma province located at the Emilia Romagna Region of Italy.

Any act attempting to legitimize the leader of the PKK which violently murdered more than 40 thousand people and listed in the EU Terrorist Organizations List is unacceptable.

The Ambassador of Italy in Ankara, H.E. Massimo Gaiani, was invited to our Ministry and we extended our reaction regarding the issue.
