Turkish FM accuses Western countries of breaching obligations

Ankara, Feb 3 (Prensa Latina) Türkiye's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Friday accused Western countries of failing to comply with the allies' obligations by closing consulates in his country due to security threats.

If they were allies, they would have warned us of imminent threats, and if there was such imminence, shouldn’t they inform us?, Cavusoglu wondered at a press briefing in this capital, broadcast on his Twitter account.

According to the minister, there was no exchange of specific information, and these actions were deliberate.

According to Cavusoglu, Ankara is aware that some countries are telling others to join this action, and in every way, these announcements and closures have a purpose.

The heads of diplomatic missions, including the States that suspended the work of their consulates general (Belgium, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, the United States, France, Switzerland, and Sweden), were recently summoned to the Turkish Foreign Ministry.

At the meeting, Türkiye stated that the security of all diplomatic institutions in the country is always based on international agreements.
