Austria's block on Turkey's economy minister entering the country for an event marking the anniversary of last year's coup shows Vienna is not sincere in protecting democratic values, the Turkish foreign ministry spokesman said on Monday.

Earlier, the Turkish economy ministry said Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci did not request to stage an event in Austria as media reported and that while there had been plans for talks with Austrian officials, there had not been a firm request in this regard.
