No: 16, 14 January 2021, Press Release Regarding The Painting Displayed In Public Open Space In Oslo, Whereby Making Pkk Propaganda

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 15.01.2021

A painting that is supposedly related to “women’s rights” but serves as a propaganda of PKK/PYD/YPG terrorist organization was allowed to be displayed in public open space as part of an activity sponsored by the Municipality of Oslo.

That the Municipality of Oslo persists in maintaining its stance in support of terrorism despite our diplomatic demarches is exemplary.

Yet, women are among those who have suffered most from the grievances caused by the PKK, which is a bloody-handed terrorist organization that has claimed more than 40.000 lives. The fact that the PKK/YPG is a terrorist and criminal organization that has engaged in many crimes, including the abduction of children, has been reflected in the human rights reports. The cries of Diyarbakır Mothers whose children were forcefully abducted and held by the PKK, constitute an example in this regard. PYD/YPG, which is PKK’s offshoot in Syria, is one of the leading actors as regards to the abuse of women.

This terrorist propaganda should be stopped immediately. We would like to remind those who tolerate terrorism that they, too, could be hit one day by this scourge.
