Event date: 08/02/2018
During the EP plenary session (5-8 February 2018) in Strasbourg, MEPs vote on Turkey’s military assault on the Kurdish-controlled enclave of Afrin (Syria). MEPs are also set to denounce hundreds of arrests by the Turkish government in an attempt to censor criticism over its military operation. Statement by Miapetra KUMPULA-NATRI (S&D, FI).
