Turkey on Sunday condemned police violence against a Turkish citizen in Frankfurt, Germany.

“We condemn the police violence against our citizen in Frankfurt, Germany. We talked with the father of our citizen, Mustafa Ciftci, and his brother Yavuz Ciftci, and conveyed our get well wishes,” Yavuz Selim Kiran, Turkey’s deputy foreign minister, said on Twitter.

Kiran also shared the video of the police using violence against the Turkish citizen.

The incidence will be closely followed by relevant authorities at all levels, Kiran said.
