Main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) chair Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu has accused Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of “providing training to terrorists in Syria.”
Criticizing Erdoğan’s foreign policy towards civil war-hit Syria, Kılıçdaroğlu has slammed the Prime Minister’s visit to the bombed Turkish town of Reyhanlı.
“You have no idea about Reyhanlı, you do not know their problems. You do not know the locals’ crafts issues. You are the man who trains members of terrorist organizations and sends them into Syria. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, you are the terrorist leader for Syria,” Kılıçdaroğlu said May 26 in Antalya where he met the leaders of his party’s regional city branches.
Kılıçdaroğlu also said he knew that Erdoğan would file a claim for compensation for his words likening him to Syria leader Bashar al-Assad, but added Erdoğan would be “a coward” if he would not do so.
