Turkish President Tayyip Erdoğan has accused European nations of being safe haven for the political wings of the PKK terror group.
Shocking footage taken from inside the French Élysée Palace, shows outgoing French President Hollande receiving PYD ringleader Salih Muslim in a closed-door meeting.The PYD is the Syrian wing of the PKK, which is designated as a terror organization by the U.S., Turkey and the EU.
However in recent years the EU policies on PKK-PYD terrorist groups have come under scrutiny. The pkk supporters have been allowed to distribute propaganda in many eu countries, including at universities, without the fear of penalties.
They publicly organized a political campaign in Germany after German authorities allowed PKK supporters to March on the streets while holding terrorists' flags and propaganda banners.
The Turkish Foreign Ministry criticized the EU's hypocrisy about the PKK and PYD saying that, "We condemn this insincere attitude and it is clear support for terrorism by the EU."
