Party of European Socialists President Sergei Stanishev reacted to the news of an escalation of violence in Turkey, including an arson attack on the headquarters of PES sister party Halkların Demokratik Partisi (HDP) in Ankara and vandalism by pro-government demonstrators on the newspaper Hurriyet.
