ISTANBUL - French diplomatic missions in Turkey have cancelled their planned events to mark France's July 14 National Day due to security concerns, the consulate general in Istanbul said on Wednesday.

"Information points to a serious threat against plans for the celebration of the July 14 national holiday in Turkey. As a precaution, we have decided, in conjunction with the Turkish authorities, to cancel the celebrations," a statement from the mission in Istanbul said.



The consulate general had been due to hold a reception on Wednesday evening, while French missions in the capital Ankara and the Aegean coastal city of Izmir had planned events for Thursday.
