Deputy PM cautions Turkey's main opposition CHP over ‘internal provocations’ during justice march
ANKARADeputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmuş said on July 3 that it was the responsibility of the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) to not lay the ground for "internal provocations" during the ongoing "justice march" from Ankara to Istanbul.
“Unfortunately it is a march that should be monitored carefully as it lays the ground for some terror organizations to lay claim to it. We encourage the CHP’s managers to act sensitively,” Kurtulmuş told reporters in Ankara after the weekly cabinet meeting.
“We, as the state and Turkey’s domestic security departments, have been working to not allow any kind of provocation in the march from the start. CHP members should also make that effort. It is the CHP’s duty to not to allow terror organizations to find a place [during the march],” he added.
