Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has withdrawn his decision to deport 10 Western diplomats, including the United States, France and Germany.

According to the Turkish state news agency TRT, the Turkish president said in a statement that the ambassadors in the country have issued a new statement which shows that they have taken a step back from slandering our country.

Speaking at the cabinet meeting, the Turkish President said that he hoped that all ambassadors would be cautious about discussing Turkey’s internal affairs from now on.

Rajab Tayyab Ardawan said, “Our goal is not to create a crisis but to protect our sovereignty.”

Erdogan made it clear that anyone who does not respect Turkey’s independence and the sensitivities of the Turkish nation cannot live in this country, no matter who they are.

It should be noted that 10 ambassadors of Western Malik had issued a joint statement on Monday earlier this week in which they criticized the continued detention of Paris-born social worker Usman Kavala.

“I have instructed my foreign minister to declare these 10 ambassadors as undesirable as soon as possible,” Erdogan said in a statement. This term is used before deporting any person.

The countries whose ambassadors were disqualified included the United States, Canada, Germany, France, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway and Sweden.

Usman Kawala, 64, has been serving a prison sentence since 2017. He was convicted in 2013 of anti-government protests and a failed military coup in 2016.
