İstanbul, Mar 27 (DHA) – The Turkish Foreign Ministry on Sunday summoned Switzerland’s ambassador to Ankara to express its reaction over an outlawed PKK rally targeting President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in the Swiss capital Bern.
The move comes one day after the Swiss deputy ambassador was summoned to the ministry in the absence of ambassador Walter Haffner, who was not in the city at the time.
An official said the ministry protested the meeting of the PKK supporters and conveyed Ankara’s reaction to the deputy chief of mission of Switzerland in Ankara.
Erdoğan was targeted at the rally with a banner that read “Kill Erdoğan.” The Swiss police did not interfere against the banner, which had a photo of Erdoğan with a gun pointed to his temple.
“We are protesting this rally that explicitly promoted violence and terrorism and has been permitted, and we ask Switzerland to take immediate legal action against this offense,” the ministry said in a statement late on Saturday.
It also added that Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu called his Swiss counterpart about the rally, expressing his reaction.
A spokesman for the Swiss Foreign Ministry said the incident would be investigated.
