The Cyprus talks led by the United Nations (UN) will recommence in Geneva, Switzerland on January 9 after the break. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is expected to attend the conference on January 12, the last day of the talks between January 9-12.
Turkish Deputy Secretary General and Spokesperson of the Presidency İbrahim Kalın announced that President Erdoğan was to attend the last day of the talks in Geneva in a comment he made recently.
“WE DON’T WANT DICTATORS IN GENEVA”
Swiss leftist and socialist circles and people from Kurdistan and Turkey sprang into action after the news spread that Erdoğan was going to visit Geneva.
People say “We don’t want dictators in our country and our canton” on social media and point out that Erdoğan shouldn’t be coming to Switzerland.
HDK Switzerland constituents and Swiss leftist and socialist circles are preparing for a protest in front of the United Nations on January 12.
The Swiss people are calling Erdoğan’s visit to Geneva “a dark day for Geneva, known as the center for human rights” and point out the level of human rights violations in Turkey in social media posts.
As reactions against Erdoğan’s plan to visit Geneva grow, eyes turn to Swiss political parties, NGOs and many deputies who harshly criticize Erdoğan’s anti-democratic practices and call Erdoğan a dictator.
