Deputy Secretary Antony Blinken Visited The Turkish Grand National Assembly

Deputy Secretary Antony Blinken’s Remarks While Visiting the Turkish Grand National Assembly | September 27, 2016

“It is very moving to be here, the place where Turkish people, through their representatives, stood up for democracy and against the coup. It’s personally moving to me, because I worked in our own congress for six years, and to see the house where the people’s representatives meet be a victim of this attack speaks very clearly and very powerfully. So I wanted to start my day here by paying respects to those who stood up for Turkish democracy and stood against the coup.
