No: 163, 12 June 2019, Press Release Regarding The Resolutions Adopted By The House Of Representatives In The Netherlands Against Turkey

Республіка Туреччина Міністерство Закордонних Справ 12.06.2019

We strongly reject the resolutions adopted yesterday in the House of Representatives in the Netherlands upon the initiatives of the circles against Turkey, as well as the baseless and slanderous allegations referred to in these resolutions.

It should be known that these groundless efforts, which are devoid of sense of consideration and seriousness, will not go unanswered for those who resort to them. The kind of political mentality that tries to attract the attention of voters by resorting to populism and thus saving the day, will eventually bring harm to those who surrender to these irrational approaches.

It would be advisable for the Netherlands' House of Representatives to address more important issues that threaten European values, rather than an anti-Turkey stance that feeds on prejudices. It would be useful, in this regard, to give priority to adopting measures against the rising extreme right, xenophobia, racism, hatred of Islam, and the increasing attacks against mosques.

It is clear that at a time when efforts are underway to normalize our relations with the Netherlands and progress is being made as a result of mutual steps, these kind of unfounded and ill-minded attempts of the Dutch Parliament, the purpose of which is incomprehensible, will not contribute to our relations.
