Turkey – Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (25.07.16)


Q - Do you have any comment on information out of Turkey about the order to arrest some 42 journalists in the aftermath of the failed coup attempt?

A - As we said on July 18, along with our European partners at the Foreign Affairs Council, we repeat that the measures being taken by the Turkish authorities in the aftermath of the coup attempt must not undermine the rule of law and the exercise of fundamental liberties, particularly the freedom of the press.
