Tur­key up­set by Kur­dish fes­ti­val in Ger­many:

The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WORLD -

Tur­key’s For­eign Min­istry sum­moned Ger­many’s am­bas­sador in Ankara to protest the coun­try’s al­lowance of “ter­ror pro­pa­ganda” by Kur­dish mil­i­tants. The min­istry said a fes­ti­val in Cologne used “sym­bols” of the out­lawed Kur­dis­tan Work­ers’ Party, or PKK, in­clud­ing pic­tures of the group’s leader, Ab­dul­lah Ocalan, who is im­pris­oned in Tur­key. The Turk­ish gov­ern­ment has re­peat­edly ac­cused Ger­many of har­bor­ing the PKK, and re­la­tions have soured in the past year.
