Consulate General of Turkey - Q&A (13 May 2022)


Q: The Turkish Consulate General in Paris was attacked on May 12 with explosive devices. Some are attributing the attack to the PKK. Is that what you believe?

A: We strongly condemn the attack carried out late Wednesday night on Turkey’s Consulate General in Boulogne-Billancourt. The matter was swiftly referred to the appropriate sections of the Interior and Justice Ministries and the government will continue to monitor the situation with the utmost vigilance.

We take the security of diplomatic sites extremely seriously. The Turkish Embassy and the Ambassador’s Residence are receiving specific, appropriate protection.
