“We will not let such rhetoric to normalize”
ANKARA - Reminding a French political scientist assassination attempt calls on President Erdoğan, the Presidential Spokesman Kalın said, “We will never allow normalization and ordinaryization of such rhetoric.”
Presidency Spox Ibrahim Kalın made important statements at a press conference held in the Presidency Complex.
Referring to the French political scientist Philippe Moreau Defarges assassin call about President Erdoğan on a TV channel, Kalın said, “Obviously, such phrases such as 'coup', 'assassination', 'dictatorship' and so on are part of the same package. Those are based on the politics of hostility to Erdogan, a fictitious and racist politician, some of the circles, members of the media, activists and others, as well as legitimate illegal organizations hostile to Turkiye such as FETO, such as PKK, who stood on them. I would like to emphasize first of all that we will never allow normalization and ordinaryization of such discourses. Because it is the effort to prepare the ground for something else. Those are not a political analysis, not comments, are part of a plan to normalize something else. We will mobilize all the possibilities that are necessary to ensure that these fascist approaches are not considered normal and legitimate on behalf of national will, morality and conscience in the name of democracy, and we will not tolerate such discourses.”
Reminding a journalist that the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe will announce a resolution on Turkiye tomorrow, he said:
“It is already known that some members of the PACE [Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe] observers are clearly PKK supporters, working for them, participating in their activities, explaining in their favor, going to their meetings, so that the reports they have written and the reports they make, we already do not expect to be impartial, balanced and fair nature. Which is already in fact before the referendum, and on the day of the referendum and the next day, they clarify their parties, the color of their votes clearly, some of them clearly come in and join the no campaigns in social media accounts. Should you choose such observers you sent to a country like Turkiye?” (ILKHA)
