Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Tanju Bilgiç, In Response To A Question Regarding The Allegations On A Foreign News Website , 26.08.2015

QA-22, 26 August 2015

The news published on a foreign website asserting that Turkey is involved in the incident in which the first members attending the Train and Equip program were abducted by a terrorist organization while returning to Syria is completely fictitious. 

Alleging that Turkey has relations with groups which it has designated as terrorist organizations is a deliberate and vicious slander.”
