Spain is indivisible but Turkey is not?
Does being European mean the same thing as being hypocritical? The news of the arrest of Carles Puigdemont, leader of Spain’s Catalan separatists, in Germany made me laugh. Why is it that Germany embraces so many varieties of PKK and gives citizenship to whoever wants to divide Turkey but does not help Spain’s separatists? Or why the demonstrations of PKK spokespersons at the assemblies of the European Parliament, which approve every proposal against Turkey? When you look at the relations between Turkey and the EU from Turkey’s point of view, you can see that a two-faced policy is being pursued. As Erdogan pointed out in a speech last week, «If there are terrorist organization members who operate against our country, all of them have been embraced by Europe and they were given weapons for free and were used against us.”
