No: 130, 5 July 2024, Regarding the Decision by UEFA about Turkish National Footballer Merih Demiral

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 05.07.2024

We regret that UEFA has suspended our national footballer Merih Demiral for two matches.

International sporting events are organised to bring societies and countries closer together.

This decision has caused deep disappointment among our citizens both at home and abroad, and has reinforced the assessment that the trend of prejudice against foreigners is on the rise in some European countries.
