Turkish Embassy on NZers in Turkey
Press Release from the Turkish Embassy in Wellington
It has come to our attention that some news and commentaries are being increasingly published in some media circles alleging that there is a hostile environment in Turkey against the citizens of New Zealand and Australia and that it is not secure to travel to Turkey, including for the Çanakkale Land Battles Commemorations that will take place on 24-25 April 2019.
The Turkish Embassy would like to categorically rule out the existence of such a hostile environment or any security threat in Turkey against our Anzac brothers and sisters. We would like to assure that all foreign guests intending to visit Turkey, including our Anzac brothers and sisters, are most welcome to our country.
We will continue to work together with New Zealand and Australia to further deepen our special relations befitting our historic ties.
