Statement of the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy, in Response to a Question Regarding the Invitation of FETO Members to an Iftar Dinner Organized by the Office of the Grand Mufti of Kyrgyzstan

It is unacceptable that leading FETO members in Kyrgyzstan were invited to an iftar dinner organized by the Office of the Grand Mufti of Kyrgyzstan on the 8th of May. In fact, our Ambassador to Bishkek became aware of the situation and reacted rightfully.

Combatting the FETO structure abroad is one of our main priorities. We have persistently explained the threat posed by this terrorist organization to our counterparts in countries where FETO is present, on many occasions.

We expect not only the official authorities of friendly countries, but also their national institutions to adopt a sensitive approach vis-A�-vis this matter.
