Turkey is preparing to ban the use of e-cigarettes and stop them from entering the country, Health Minister Faruk Koca said.

Koca said that ministry was currently working on the legal regulation for the ban and it would soon be brought to parliament, independent news site Diken reported on Tuesday.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who is a fierce opponent of smoking, has labelled e-cigarettes as products as “bizarre” and addictive. In September, he said the ministry and customs officials were working to ban the entrance of e-cigarettes into the country.
