Established in 1968, the Consulate-General of Türkiye in Los Angeles has been operating at its current address at 8500 Wilshire Boulevard since June 2020. The residential compound of the Consulate-General was acquired in 1982.
Turkish Consulate-General in Los Angeles was the first among those Turkish diplomatic missions abroad that became the target of a series of over 30 heinous terrorist attacks from 1970s to 1990s, claiming the lives of over 35 Turkish diplomats/officials and their family members.
Consul-General Mr. Mehmet Baydar and Vice-Consul Mr. Bahadır Demir, who were assassinated in Santa Barbara/California on 27 January 1973 by an Armenian assassin, are the first martyrs of the Turkish Foreign Service as well as our Consulate-General. The third Turkish martyr in Los Angeles is Consul-General Mr. Kemal Arıkan who was assassinated on 28 January 1982 by Armenian terrorists.
