ANKARA — The Turkish Foreign Ministry on November 4 criticized France’s move to ban Turkish ultra-nationalist Grey Wolves group, accusing it of “becoming completely captive of the Armenian circles,” and saying that France ignores “the rising incitement of the fanatical Armenian diaspora” within its borders, as well as threats and attacks targeting Turkish people and diplomatic missions in recent months.

According to the ministry, “the provocative and hypocritical decision of the French government was reminiscent of the country’s bad record in fighting terrorist organizations groups, including, in particular, the ASALA group, which killed Turkish diplomats, as well as the PKK and Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), which have received protection and support from France”.

Official Ankara also claims that the Gray Wolves organization does not exist at all, and the decision of the French government is “imaginary, hypocritical and provocative” in nature.
