Erdogan: Turkey rapidly advancing toward becoming production hub for international companies
(MENAFN) According to Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish president, he instructed the foreign minister to state 10 ambassadors persona non grata over their statement on the ongoing case of businessman Osman Kavala.
A ceremony in the central Eskisehir province quoted Erdogan as saying that the envoys who called for Kavala's release "should either understand Turkey or they should leave". "It is not a tribal state as you might consider. This is Turkey."
On a statement on social media, the embassies of the US, Germany, Denmark, Finland, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Canada, Norway and New Zealand called for Kavala's release, claiming the case has cast a shadow over democracy and the rule of law in Turkey.
The Turkish Foreign Ministry urged the ambassadors of these countries, accusing them of meddling in the Turkish judiciary .
