Turkish foreign ministry summons Danish, Dutch diplomats over Quran burnings

Türkiye’s foreign ministry summoned the Danish charge d’affaires and a Dutch diplomat over burnings of the holy Quran, state-owned broadcaster TRT Haber said on Monday.

Anti-Islam activists have burned or damaged several copies of the Muslim holy book in recent months, prompting outrage in the Muslim world and demands that the Nordic governments ban such acts.

Türkiye has repeatedly condemned such protests in recent months, including those in Sweden, which is awaiting Ankara’s approval to join NATO.
