Turkish foreign minister warns rise of racism in Europe
VILNIUS – Anatolia News Agency
AA photoMeasures should be taken against racism, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu said at the Vilnius meeting of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).
There has been an escalation in racism in Europe, Davutoğlu said during his speech at the 18th Ministerial Council of the OSCE in Lithuania. He thanked German authorities for condemning neo-Nazi terror attacks that killed eight Turks and a Greek in Germany.
Measures were needed against racism under the roof of the OSCE, he said. “Nobody can convince me that the lives and security of migrants are less important than other people.” Davutoğlu also called on the OSCE to take action to solve the Nagorno-Karabakh problem as the Minsk Group’s initiatives were inconclusive.
