Turkish premier urges European countries to move against PKK terrorism
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday called European countries to act more swiftly against PKK's activities in Europe, AA reported.
"European countries should see how tolerance shown for the terrorist organization in Europe translates into bloody terror acts in Turkey," Erdogan told a gala dinner to mark the 50th anniversary of the migration of Turkish guest workers to Germany.
Erdogan said fight against terrorism could not prove successful with efforts of a single country, adding that all countries should act against it.
"Whoever believes in human values should step up. Those who tolerate terrorism becomes an accessory to the bloody face of terrorism," Erdogan said.
Touching on Turkish migrants' integration to the German society, Erdogan said Turks living in Germany must learn the German language, adding, "however no one should expect us to forget our own mother tongue."
"And after these fifty years, we now want to see Turks who make valuable contributions in every aspect to their country of residence with their culture, traditions, beliefs and language," Erdogan said.
