Turkey has slammed French security forces’ violent response to protesters who took to the streets across the country to protest controversial labor reforms.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan condemned the violence of French police against protesters, as well as Western media for not covering the events, on May 30.

“I am also concerned and worried about the incidents happening in Paris right now. I condemn the violence of French police against people who use their right to protest and Western media that do not cover the incidents,” Erdoğan said, during an event in the Esenler district of Istanbul.
