Turkey is concerned about the security of Crimean Tatars in Crimea in view of the previous day's attack on the building of Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars and an attempt not to admit former Mejlis chairman Mustafa Jemilev to the peninsula.
Turkish Foreign Ministry announced this in an official statement April 23.
Turkey condemned the forceful removal of the Ukrainian flag from Crimean Tatar Mejlis by a group with unmarked military uniforms and said "it is worrying for the safety of Crimean Tatars to see the local forces without any security precautions".
Turkey's foreign ministry also emphasized the "peaceful efforts" made by the Crimean Tatar Leader for "securing the Crimean Tatars' future in their homeland" in the statement.
A reminder that April 21, about 30 members of “self-defense forces” of Crimea came to Mejlis, broke into the building and took Ukrainian flag down and put Crimean one instead.
Ukrainian flag was placed at the building of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people in Simferopol April 19 after Crimean Tatar leader, MP of Ukraine Mustafa Jemilev arrived in Crimea.
