Turkish Minister of Customs and Trade Hayati Yazici on Saturday said that counter-terrorism will continue in Turkey until terror ended completely.
Speaking at the 25th gala meal of Turkey's Zaman newspaper in Vienna's historic Hofburg Palace, Yazici stressed that "terror destroyed the right of individuals to live".
"The most important duty of the (Turkish) government is to protect the rights of its citizens to live. The right to live is the basis of all rights," Yazici noted.
"No one in Turkey is facing discrimination based on his or her ethnicity or sect," Yazici underlined.
Touching on his talks in Austria, Yazici said that they advised 300,000 Turks living in Austria to respect the laws of the country they were living in and to love all humans without making discriminations".
