(MENAFN- Trend News Agency) BAKU, Azerbaijan, March 25. Turkish Foreign
Ministry has condemned 2022 Human Rights Report of the U.S.
Department of State, trend reports citing the statement of MFA.
"The 2022 Human Rights Report of the U.S. Department of State
contains, as in previous years, erroneous information of unknown
origin, unfounded allegations, and prejudiced comments regarding
our country. We condemn and reject them in their entirety. Our
fight against terrorist organizations, in particular PKK/PYD/YPG,
FETO, DAESH and DHKP-C, to ensure the security of our country and
region, continues decisively within the framework of international
law and respect for human rights. Given this fact, we cannot accept
the distorted portrayal of our legitimate efforts in the report,"
said the statement.
Ministry regret that the report mentions only some of the
terrorist attacks carried out by the PKK in Türkiye and the human
rights violations of inconcealable proportions committed by the
organization in 2022.
"It is lamentable that while the human rights violations
committed in Syria by the so-called“Syrian Democratic Forces” are
mentioned in the report's Syria section, it is not specified that
this structure is controlled by the PKK/PYD/YPG.
We draw the public's attention to the fact that this report was
prepared by a country that condones the activities of PKK/PYD/YPG
and FETO terrorist organizations and even establishes
“partnerships” with them, and thus question its legitimacy and
credibility. We emphasize once again that this report, which is
clearly shaped by political motives and is completely devoid of
objectivity, cannot be taken seriously, and we invite the United
States to focus on its own record on human rights.
Türkiye will resolutely continue its efforts to protect and
enhance the rights of its citizens and the millions of people it
hosts, without giving credit to these baseless and biased
accusations," MFA said.
