Turkey summons German ambassador over Frankfurt PKK rally ‘scandal’

The Turkish Foreign Ministry has summoned the German ambassador to Ankara to voice its outrage at a Frankfurt rally in which tens of thousands of protesters brandished the insignia of the outlawed PKK, lambasting Berlin for the “pro-PKK rally scandal.”

“Yesterday, the German ambassador was invited, was summoned, to the foreign ministry and this [rally] was condemned in the strongest way,” said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s spokesman Ibrahim Kalin on Sunday in an interview with the CNN Turk broadcaster.
