European Parliament: Ankaras decision to expel ambassadors reflects an authoritarian trend


European Parliament President David Sassoli said that Ankaras decision reflects an authoritarian tendency.

In turn, the US State Department announced that it is awaiting clarification from Ankara regarding its decision to expel the ambassadors of ten countries, including the US ambassador. While Germany announced that it is holding consultations with other countries regarding the expulsion of ambassadors from Turkey, Norway also indicated that its embassy in Ankara had not received notification from the Turkish authorities in this regard. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has declared the ambassadors of ten countries, including the American, German, French and Canadian persona non grata, against the background of their demand for the release of the Turkish opposition businessman Osman Kavala.
