Germany warns 11 MPs to keep out of Turkey after Armenian genocide vote
Eleven German MPs of Turkish descent, who voted for recognition of the Armenian genocide, have reportedly received a travel warning from the German Foreign Ministry. They were told not to visit Turkey – or face safety risks there, RT reports.
German MPs of Turkish origin have been recommended not travel to Turkey in the nearest future as “their security could not be guaranteed,”Der Spiegel reported on Saturday, citing an internal communication from the Foreign Ministry.
“It is unspeakable to know for the first time that it’s no longer possible to fly there,” Aydan Ozoguz, a Socialist Democratic Party MP told Der Spiegel.
Other German-Turkish MPs have already canceled business trips to Ankara and summer holidays on the Bosporus, according to the magazine. One lawmaker reportedly made sure that his parents leave their family house in Turkey, seeking shelter at a hotel in another city.
