“Erdogan brought Turkey’s prestige in foreign policy to the lowest level in history”
President Tayyip Erdogan begged Russian leader Vladimir Putin to establish contact with the Syrian administration, bringing down Turkey's reputation to the lowest levels in history, Turkish main opposition leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu said.
In an interview with Turkey’s Sozcu newspaper published on Saturday about the new foreign policy of the government, CHP (Repiblican’s People Party) Co-Chair Kilicdaroglu said that “Erdogan goes door to door to fix the broken relations in the Middle East” as the CHP predicted years ago.
“As the saying goes, they made him eat crow. He (Erdogan) led Turkey up to this point, a level so low that the country never witnessed before. And he calls himself a world leader.” Kilicdaroglu said, adding that Erdogan failed to get attention wherever he goes.
“He is in and out of Saudi Arabia to ask them to help him reconcile with Egypt. He goes to Russia for reconciliation with Syria. The sad thing is that the entire Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been completely disabled,” Kilicdaroglu said.
“On the one hand, he says he wants to meet with Assad, on the other hand, he says, 'I will attack Syria’. Our country has never seen such a great imbalance, such a great lack of foresight."
