Greenpeace activists have always been trouble in Black Sea: President Erdoğan
AA photoActivists of the international environmentalist group Greenpeace have always been trouble in Black Sea, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said, suggesting that they were only supposedly enlightened.
“We are trying to build up a system based on technology transfer in nuclear power stations. We have simply made a revolution in hydroelectric power plants. We have also faced serious obstructions on the issue, such as Greenpeace activists. They have always been a trouble in our Black Sea,” Erdoğan said speaking at the opening ceremony of electric power plants in Ankara on Nov. 7.
The president also said Greenpeace activists pretended to be enlightened while speaking, but said they were actually in the darkness.
“They pretend to be enlightened [but] you are in the darkness. We do not want humanity to live in the darkness,” Erdoğan said.
He also added that many countries were engaging in the politics of animosity against Turkey in terms of its future plans.
