Qa-16, 5 March 2020, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy, In Response To A Question Regarding The Comments Of The Spokesperson Of The Indian Ministry Of External Affairs On President Erdoğan’s Remarks About The Recent Violent Incidents In Delhi

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 05.03.2020

We consider the comments made by the Spokesperson of the Indian Ministry of External Affairs during his press statement on 5 March on President Erdoğan’s remarks regarding the recent violent incidents in Delhi as overstepping the limit and as an irresponsible attempt to deny concrete facts.

Video footage circulated by international news agencies clearly manifests the acts of violence carried out against Muslims in New Delhi after 23 February.

We expect from the Indian Government to ensure that the security agencies take necessary measures to prevent acts of violence against Muslims, and to exercise utmost sensitivity for the protection of peace and safety of all its citizens.
