Turkey’s FM blames OSCE and PACE observers on supporting terrorism
STEPANAKERT, APRIL 19, ARTSAKHPRESS: Cavusoglu said the OSCE/ODIHR and the PACE observers took part in the rallies against the referendum and attended ‘no’ campaign before the referendum. “This time the delegation came with bad intentions and made political remarks rather than technical, meanwhile their work is not to make political comments”, the Turkish FM said.
He also blamed the observer mission members on supporting terrorism, stating that their report is not binding.
FM Cavusoglu also stated that they will present their final proposal on visa regime liberalization to the EU. “Let them decide. Either yes or no. If they say ‘no’, the remaining agreements, including the agreement on refugees will be terminated”, he said.
