TIM CONDEMNS BILD: WE REGARD BILD'S INSULT TO TURKEY'S MINISTER of ECONOMY as an INSULT TO WHOLE COUNTRY

The Chairman of the Turkish Exporters' Assembly (TIM), Mehmet BUYUKEKSI, has issued a press statement regarding the news coverage of BILD about Turkey's Minister of Economy, Nihat ZEYBEKCİ, in which he condemns the smear campaign in German press against Turkish politicians.

According to Mr. BUYUKEKSİ: “Germany has not only been the leading trade partner of Turkey for years, but also hosts the most populous group of Turkish citizens in Europe. We see this smear campaign as a malevolent act targeting the close bonds between two countries. Acts like these against the ministers and other public officials of any country are considered an insult against the whole country being represented. There is no way we could see this attitude of German officials as an act of goodwill. Turkey's Minister of Economy has been making every effort in order to increase Turkey's growth and employment rate, and to attract more investment. We consider this act an insult to the whole country and expect a reversal of this attitude.”
