The Switzerland federal government said on Thursday there was no reason to forbid Foreign Minister Mevlut Chavushoglu's visit to Zurich, saying it is responsible of security matters during the minister's meeting with Turkish community.
Axar.az reports that, the Swiss foreign ministry said there was no extraordinary threat level that would justify curbs on freedom of speech and declined Zurich authorities demand to cancel the rally to campaign for the upcoming referendum in Turkey.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Chavushoglu is due to speak on Sunday, although the Zurich-area hotel where he had planned to appear canceled the event at its facility.
"The Swiss federal government authorities responsible for security matters are of the opinion that Sunday's planned visit of the Turkish foreign minister in Zurich does not at the moment pose an elevated threat to internal security," the EDA said. "Consequently, there are no reasons to forbid the visit."
