Kurdish militants were killed in Paris by firearms on Jan.10. One of those killed - Sakine Cansiz - was one of the founders of the terrorist Kurdistan Workers' Party.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has previously called for an investigation into the incident, and demanded French President Francois Hollande to explain the reasons why he kept in contact with the terrorist PKK.

recognised as a terrorist organisation by both the UN and the EU.
