Turkey renames new US embassy street 'Malcolm X Avenue'

Move coincides with a period of fraught relations between Turkey and the US and comes after other politically charged name changes to streets in Ankara

City authorities in Turkey’s capital, Ankara, have renamed the street where the new US embassy is being built “Malcolm X Avenue”, after the civil rights leader, state media reported.

The move coincides with a period of fraught relations between Turkey and the US and comes after other politically charged name changes to streets in Ankara.
------
“The street was given the name of US Muslim politician and human rights defender Malcolm X, about whom President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said, ‘We will make his name live on in Ankara,’” Ankara’s municipality said in a statement published by Anadolu news agency on Saturday.
------
Construction of the new US embassy in Ankara is scheduled for completion in 2020.

Last December, the mayor of Ankara ordered the street of the United Arab Emirates mission to be renamed after the Ottoman former governor of Medina, following a row between the two countries about the state of the holy city under Ottoman rule.

No doubt tRump will be pissed they didn't rename the street after him. Do you think tRump will order the street's name changed where Turkey's embassy is located in Washington?

Embassy of the Republic of Turkey in Washington
2525 Massachusetts Ave., NW
Washington, DC 20008

So much diplomatic winning!......... ......

2. needs statue

Malcom X Avenue should have a statue of Malcom X within view of the embassy.

That should be enough to ensure that Daddy's Boy Donnie never visits Turkey.

3. He would counter that with....

a statue of John Bolton on the embassy grounds.

tRump better watch his step, or we could lose that big airbase there, or have it highly restricted.

Can't wait to see the web site and official stationary for that new embassy with Malcom X in the address.....
