European Parliament backs PKK terror group

World Bulletin / News Desk

Turkey has strongly criticized the European Parliament's friendly attitude towards the PKK terror group, including its call to halt the ongoing Operation Olive Branch in Afrin, holding a PKK exhibition in Brussels and hosting wanted PKK terrorists.

Coming to the forefront with its anti-Turkey attitude, the European Parliament members usually make statements and attempts against Ankara, ignoring the country’s security concerns and international interests.

On Thursday, the European Parliament drafted a motion calling on Turkey to withdraw its troops from Syria's Afrin region.

European Parliament's motion, calling on Turkey to stop Operation Olive Branch, has been seen in the country as a reflection of the European Parliament members' closeness to PKK, which is in the EU terrorist watch list.

The PYD/PKK is the Syrian branch of the terrorist group PKK, which is responsible for over 40,000 deaths, in a violent campaign against Turkey for more than 30 years.
