Qa-36, 13 August 2021, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Tanju Bilgiç, In Response To A Question Regarding The Statement Of The Greek Ministry Of Foreign Affairs About The Non-admission Of A Greek Citizen To Turkey

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 14.08.2021

We find it odd and reject the statement made by the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding the non-admission of a Greek citizen into our country, holding an ordinary passport, who did not have an official duty and title.

We remind Greece that the authority to set out entry conditions into a country is the sovereign right of every state.

The Greek citizen, who did not meet the necessary conditions of entry, was denied entry into our country and was sent back to his country following the completion of the process, run in compliance with the rules of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and our laws. During the process, he was enabled to get in contact with his Consulate.
