    Claims that no one from the Turkish government attended an awards ceremony for author Orhan Pamuk held in Frankfurt, Germany this past weekend have elicited a response from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Ankara. Speaking to reporters, Ministry spokesperson Namik Tan said:

    "The Turksih Consul to Frankfurt, Bogac Guldere, visited Orhan Pamuk before the ceremony and congratulated his winning of the Peace Award. Following this, the Turkish Consul returned to the salon and stayed for the duration of the ceremony."
    On exiting the awards ceremony, Pamuk had been asked by reporters how he interpreted the fact that no one from Ankara had officially attended the ceremony. Pamuk had responded "I had no expectation that anyone from Turkey would come. The fact that no one came from the government did not sadden me, in fact, in some ways, it was an honor for me."
