Turkey's ruling party spokesman on June 3 hailed demands for equality as anti-racist protests continue in the country after the killing of African-American man George Floyd.
Turkey is against all groups trying to turn legitimate protests in the US violent and bring public order under their destructive influence, said Ömer Çelik, spokesman for the AKP, after a party board meeting.
Facebook employees are staging a rare protest against the company for leaving up a post from President Donald Trump they say could incite violence. The employees, who began publicly criticizing the social network on Twitter over the weekend, have escalated their disapproval by staging a virtual walkout and symbolically changing their workplace profile pictures.
Turkey's president offered condolences on May 28 to the family of George Floyd over his death.
"I believe that the perpetrators of this inhumane act shall receive the punishment they deserve. We will be monitoring the issue," President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on Twitter.
"I remember with respect George Floyd and extend my condolences to his family and loved ones," he added.
