QA-6, 13 February 2017, Statement of the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Hüseyin Müftüoğlu, in Response to a Question regarding the statements of Peter Pilz, Member of Parliament and Security Spokesperson of the Austrian Green Party, about Turkey

The accusations made by Peter Pilz, Member of the Parliament and Security Spokesperson of the Austrian Green Party, directed against Turkey, targeting also the Turkish Embassy in Vienna, at a press conference on 10 February 2017 do not reflect the reality. We strongly reject the said allegations.

We call on the Austrian politicians to act with common sense and refrain from these sorts of statements damaging the Turkish Austrian relations and welfare of the Turkish community living in Austria.
