Turkey sends note of protest to Germany

Turkey has sent a note of protest to the German Foreign Ministry in connection with the ban on holding rallies in support of the Turkish government ahead of the early parliamentary and presidential elections, Turkish media reported April 23.

The Netherlands, Austria and Germany have recently banned holding of rallies in support of the Turkish government ahead of the early parliamentary and presidential elections.


Previously it was reported that the Turkish president will start a European tour, during which he will meet with representatives of the Turkish diaspora.

On April 18, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated about the need for early presidential and parliamentary elections in Turkey.

"The government welcomed the proposal of Devlet Bahceli [leader of the Nationalist Movement Party] to hold early elections. The elections will be held on June 24, 2018," he said.
