ANKARA - Turkey has warned online encyclopedia Wikipedia, blocked by Ankara two weeks ago, over what it says is content creating a perception that Turkey is supporting terrorist organizations, Turkish Transport Minister Ahmet Arslan said on Thursday.

Turkey's telecommunications watchdog said two weeks ago that access to Wikipedia had been blocked, citing a law allowing it to ban access to websites deemed a threat to national security.

Speaking to broadcaster NTV, Arslan demanded Wikipedia open a representative office in Turkey and be eligible to pay tax.
