The Italian government Minister of sports, Vincenzo Spadafora, has written to the UEFA governing body to have a rethink about the already scheduled Uefa champions league final of May 30, 2019, that has already been decided to take place in istabul, Turkey for 2020 finals.
This call comes as a result of Turkish invasion of Kurdish-held territory in northern Syria. This invasion has complicated an already chaotic war. What began eight years ago as a series of nonviolent protests against the Syrian government metamorphosed into international conflicts, between dozens of local factions, the Islamic State and several foreign countries.
In Spadafora letter to UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin, he told UEFA “to consider whether it is appropriate to keep the Champions League final in Istanbul” after Turkey’s “very grave acts against the Kurdish civilian population.”
His letter comes shortly after the EU condemned Turkey’s actions against Kurdish.
