Turkish Foreign Minister asked Denmark to take immediate action to prevent the repetition of insults to the Holy Quran.

Iran PressAsia: Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan called on Denmark to take urgent action to prevent Quran burnings amid repeated provocative attacks, as he condemned the "continuous vile attacks" in a phone call with his Danish counterpart Lars Lokke Rasmussen.

Noting that anti-Muslim hatred has reached alarming levels in Europe, Fidan said it is unacceptable that Danish authorities permit such "vile acts" under the name of freedom of expression.

Fidan said Türkiye expects the Danish government to take immediate action to prevent such attacks.

Copies of the Holy Quran have been burned at several demonstrations in Sweden and Denmark this summer, causing outrage among Muslims and prompting protesters to storm and vandalize the Swedish embassy in Baghdad.

Denmark and Sweden have said they deplore the burning of the Holy Quran but cannot prevent it under rules protecting free speech.
