Italian among four NGOs banned from Turkey (2)

For 'national security' reasons - media

(ANSA) - Istanbul, April 13 - The Italian Coordination of Organisations for Voluntary Service (COSV) was among four NGOS banned from Turkey for "national security" reasons Thursday, Hurriyet reported. The others are two American organisations, the Mercy Corps and the Business Software Alliance Incorporation (BSA), and International NGO Safety Organization (INSO) of Britain. The ban is "incomprehensible", Deputy Foreign Minister Mario Giro tweeted Thursday. "We will ask for an explanation", he said.
    COSV, which is based in Rome and Milan, has been working for 45 years on projects in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Europe.
