Turkey’s government is not attending Europe’s largest human rights conference because it was not allowed to prevent non-governmental organizations from participating, AP reported Tuesday.
“Turkey is the only country boycotting… because it insists on having the ability to veto NGOs wishing to participate,” the US Helsinki Commission, a US government agency, said on Twitter on Monday.
The yearly two-week conference, which opened in Warsaw, is organized by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. The conference allows civil society groups, no matter how small, to participate on an equal footing with governments.
The presence of Soros financed NGOs caused controversy among other nations, not just Turkey, considering the fact these NGOs are behind the literal transportation of migrants from Africa into Europe.
