Congressman Mike Turner (OH-10), Chairman of the US Delegation to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Parliamentary Assembly, released the following statement after Recep Tayyip Erdogan won re-election in Turkey:

“President Erdogan’s re-election puts Turkey at a crossroads. My hope moving forward is that Turkey re-engages with the Western world and re-establishes its commitment to democracy. The President must heed the concerns from the international community and NATO to preserve freedom and protect human rights.”
