The Turkish prime minister made a strong statement to France:
"The French head of state must explain immediately to the world public why ... he is in communication with these terrorists", Erdogan demanded.
Thus, Turkey has shown that it not disregarded the president of France Francois Hollande's statement that he was personally acquainted and met with one of the activists of Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which is in Turkey and in Europe is considered a "terrorist", killed in Paris.
The Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan demanded Hollande to clarify his relationship with the PKK.
"Hollande must explain the world how can he regularly meet with these people who are members of a group listed as a terrorist organization by the European Union and who are wanted under red bulletin (issued by Interpol)", said Erdogan on Saturday, reports TRT Haber.
According to the Turkish prime minister, the incident in Paris could have been either the internal struggle between the Kurds or the attempt to attack the process of peaceful settlement of the Kurdish question.
It is to be recalled that a few days ago unknown, entering the Paris office of Kurdish activists, shot three people, among whom was one of the founders of the Workers' Party of Kurdistan, included by UN and the EU in the list of "terrorist organizations".
