MHP chair slams German Islam Conference
Addressing his party’s parliamentary group meeting, Devlet Bahçeli recalled that the conference was opened by German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, “who said that Islam does not belong to Germany.”
He also criticized the choice of food being served at the conference, namely sausage made of pork.
‘US is indifferent to code of alliance’
Bahçeli also criticized the U.S. plan to place observation posts in the east of the Euphrates River in northern Syria.
He said that the alliance between Turkey and the U.S. requires “reciprocally ethic and legal responsibility” of the parties.
“However, the U.S. is indifferent to the code of alliance. They are always side by side with terror organizations,” said Bahçeli.
He described the U.S. action to set up observation posts in northeastern Syria -- along Turkey’s southeastern border -- as “scandalous.”
On November, the U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis said that the U.S. was placing observation posts along the Turkish border in northern Syria.
