SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Turkey’s state-owned Anadolu Agency Saturday reported that the temporary Charge d’affaires of the Swiss Embassy in Ankara was summoned Friday to the Foreign Affairs Ministry. 

The summon occurred after the “forced” entry of PKK “terror” group members and supporters into the World Health Organization (WHO) headquarters in Geneva, according to Anadolu.

“The tolerant attitude of Swiss authorities toward PKK supporters allowed them to enter the building by force on Nov. 9”, ministry spokesman Tanju Bilgic said in a statement.

Bilgic also accused Swiss authorities of paving way for the PKK members to hold protests and “propaganda” events where the UN and Turkey’s diplomatic missions are located without taking any precautions.

“The rightful expectation of our country and our citizens living in Switzerland is that the Swiss authorities prevent the PKK’s black propaganda and all kinds of PKK activities and actions in Switzerland, where the Armenian terrorist organization ASALA also martyred the staff of our Consulate General in Geneva,” said the statement.

The PKK launched an insurgency against the Turkish state in 1984 and more than 40,000 people have been killed in the ensuing conflict. The PKK is regarded as a terrorist group by Turkey, the United States, and the European Union.
