Naysayer party leader returns home after EU tour on Turkey referendum

 

The leader of Turkey's main opposition party returned home after paying a visit to Brussels.

Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu told reporters at Ankara's Esenboga Airport after his arrival, "I had the chance to explain our concerns about the recent constitutional package. We saw that almost all sections shared our concerns about the judicial amendments."

Kilicdaroglu said that he would travel to Germany on Sunday to meet with Social Democratic Party officials.

He also condemned Thursday's mine attack in the southeastern province of Hakkari in which nine people were killed and four others were injured. "Killing of civilians is unacceptable," he said.

During his visit to Brussels, Kilicdaroglu held talks with European Socialists' Party President Poul Nyrup Rasmussen, European Commissioner for enlargement Stefan Fule and Belgian Parliament Speaker Andre Flahaut.

He also held talks with Martin Schulz and Hannes Swododa, chairman and vice chairman of the Socialist Group in the European Parliament.
