Qa-41, 17 November 2016, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador H.e. Hüseyin Müftüoğlu, In Response To A Question Regarding The Statements Made By The Prime Minister Of Belgium On The Remarks Of H.e. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, The President Of The Republic Of Turkey
The leaders of the EU member states who everyday make statements and comments about other countries and regard this as their rightful task, describe it as an act of intervention in their internal affairs when a comment is made about their own countries. This embodies the policy of "double standards" of the EU countries which we persistently emphasize. We regard the Belgian Prime Minister's statement in this way.
