Coca-Cola and Nestlé products have been banned from the Turkish Parliament restaurant for allegedly supporting Israel. Qatar-based media Al Jazeera reported this information on Tuesday.
A statement from the Turkish Parliament said that Coca-Cola and Nestlé products will not be available in any restaurants, cafeterias and tea shops under the jurisdiction of the Parliament.
Turkish Parliament Speaker Numan Kurtulmus announced the decision, but the statement did not name the company. However, a source told Reuters that Coca-Cola drinks and Nestle’s instant coffee have been removed from the menu in Turkey’s parliament. It has been decided to drop this product in the face of public demand.
Activists have called for a boycott of Israeli products on social media in Turkey.
