PACE decides to reopen monitoring process against Turkey


The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) on Tuesday decided to reopen political monitoring  of Turkey “until its concerns are addressed in a satisfactory manner.”

The assembly gathered Tuesday in Strasbourg in a session to discuss a report titled “The functioning of democratic institutions in Turkey,” during which 113 voted in favor, while 45 voted against the monitoring decision.

Turkey’s Foreign Ministry has harshly criticized PACE’s decision.
