Turkey: Italian FM Bonino strongly condemns police violence

(ANSAmed) - ROME, JUNE 4 - Italian Foreign Minister Emma
Bonino on Tuesday strongly condemned police violence against
anti-government demonstrators in Turkey.
''The disproportionate use of force by police cannot be an
acceptable answer to the protests'', the minister said in a
note. ''The right to demonstrate peacefully is an essential
pillar of democracy, as are pluralism and tolerance''.
''The news coming from Turkey is a source of great
apprehension, and the fact that the ongoing tensions have caused
a number of victims is very serious. We expect all parties in
Turkey to take action to stop all forms of violence and to
promote the necessary climate of dialogue and peaceful debate
between differing positions and orientations''.
''Italy still believes firmly in a European outlook for
Turkey and in its role as a fundamental factor of stability and
security on a regional scale'', the minister went on. ''We trust
that Turkey will overcome this difficult moment, confirming it
is a mature democracy that, in the words of Turkish President
Abdullah Gul, does not live solely on free elections''.
