Vienna Bars Turkish Economy Minister From Attending Failed Coup Anniversary

The Austrian Foreign Ministry prohibited Turkish Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci from entering the country on the occasion of commemorative events of the 2016 Turkish failed coup attempt citing security concerns, a ministry spokesperson said Monday.

"There is a danger to public order and security in Austria [in case of the visit]," the spokesperson told the ORF radio, adding that the minister would be welcome for a bilateral visit but not for a public appearance dedicated to the anniversary of the botched coup attempt in Turkey.

The spokesperson added that Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz condemned the coup attempt but, at the same time, he denounced the human rights situation in Turkey.
