CHP failed to inform Foreign Ministry about all but one Syria visits: Statement
“There was no information sent to our ministry before the visit. An assessment note was sent to our ministry on March 15, 2013,” the statement read, adding, that three other visits were only seen by media reports.
Only the details of the visit of the delegation headed by CHP’s deputy head Faruk Loğoğlu on 4 to 6 September, 2011, were shared with the Ministry, it added.
CHP’s last meeting with al-Assad has stirred new controversies as Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan accused the Syrian guide that arranged the visit of being directly involved with the Reyhanlı bombings on May 11 that killed 52 and wounded more than 100.
