ANKARA, Feb. 8 (Xinhua) -- Turkish Foreign Ministry rejected late Thursday a resolution adopted by the European Parliament (EP) on Turkey's human rights as "null and void."

The resolution "is far from understanding the current conditions Turkey faces," the ministry said in a written statement.

"Measures taken as part of the state of emergency are conducted within the laws and in conformity with our international obligations," the ministry added.

Turkey's "great devotion" in counter-terrorism "demonstrates that some elements within the EP are incapable of comprehending the vital importance of this fight for Europe," it noted.

On Thursday, the European Parliament adopted a resolution entitled "Current Situation of Human Rights in Turkey," targeting the issue of press freedom in the country and the state of emergency that was declared in the wake of the failed coup on July 15, 2016 and extended until now.
