Turkey's president said on Saturday that all mayors "misusing municipal facilities" would face the same consequences as three who were recently suspended for allegedly aiding the PKK terrorist group.

Axar.az reports citing Anadolu Agency.

Speaking at an opening ceremony in the northern Black Sea province of Rize, Recep Tayyip Erdogan tressed that Turkey would not allow "a single cent" of the government to go to for terrorist organizations.

Erdogan added that Ankara would continue to monitor this issue and act if needed.

Earlier this week, the mayors of the cities of Diyarbakir, Mardin and Van were suspended. They are facing terrorism charges.

The mayors -- Adnan Selcuk Mizrakli, Ahmet Turk, and Bedia Ozgokce Ertan -- are from the opposition Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), a party Turkey's government has accused of having links to the PKK terror group.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of some 40,000 people, including women, children and infants.
