KYRGYZSTAN SENT A DIPLOMATIC NOTE TO TURKEY LAST YEAR
Kyrgyzstan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs called Turkish Ambassador Cengiz Kamil Firat to the building of the ministry and sent a diplomatic note last year. According to the news published on the website of the ministry, Ambassador Firat was told that he must stay away from internal affairs and respect the laws.
BRIBE CONFESSION IN THE MOSQUE
Ambassador Cengiz Kamil Firat’s degrading attitude towards the country he currently resides in caused some eyebrows to raise, just like when he caused a scandal during the traditional iftar (evening meal during Ramadan) invitation of Kyrgyzstan’s Office of Mufti.
Firat, who refused to share a table with the members of the Gulen Movement, made the following scandalous disclosure when he was leaving the hall: “We built you a 35-million-dollar mosque and you make us sit with the terrorists.”
THE PEOPLE CALLED TERRORISTS HAVE KYRGYZ PASSPORTS
There were many ambassadors from tens of different countries that evening in the iftar invitation. The mufti, who is the host of the evening, has a daughter who also studies in one of these schools and Ambassador Firat calls these people terrorists. All of the people who are addressed as terrorists by him carry a Kyrgyz passport. At first, Ambassador Firat requested the members of Gulen Movement to be removed from the hall but the ulama who was hosting the organization stated, “We do not have such culture to kick out guests, let alone during Ramadan”, and left the Turkish ambassador alone. The ambassador made a grandstand play after his request was denied and left the hall by disturbing the peace.
A diplomat, who was also in the iftar invitation, commented that the Turkish ambassador’s attitude was far away from maturity and diplomacy and stated the following: “If your political view does not fit in the atmosphere, you should just get up “English style” and leave the place quietly.”
