Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 29.06.2020

It is certain that our glorious history and the dear memory of Great Leader and founder of our Republic, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, who has an undisputably exceptional place in world history, cannot be overshadowed through such repugnant acts.

Our Embassy in Washington launched the necessary initiatives to ensure that an investigation will be opened against the perpetrators of this detestable act before the US Authorities.
