Nevruz celebrations attended by a quarter of a million people. Without Turkish flag
In comments on the Nevruz celebrations, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan expressed frustration with the absence of Turkish flags. “The lack of Turkish flags was contrary to Öcalan’s message,” said Erdoğan, speaking during an official visit in the Netherlands.
People from 85 different parts of Diyarbakır gathered at Nevruz Park, where the celebrations take place. They were carrying posters of Öcalan and Kurdish flags, while there were no Turkish flags flying.
