Recep Tayyip Erdogan
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has given details on Ankara's proposal that a safe zone should be set up in Syria as a step to address the migrant crisis.
In an interview with Al Arabiya TV, he has said the zone could become temporary home to refugees currently living in the camps of Turkey who would like to return to their country.
Russian accusations that Turkey is making money from oil trade with Islamic State resemble "Cold War Soviet propaganda machine lies," says Ahmed Davutoglu.
The Turkish prime minister reacted in this way to accusations of the Russian military that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his family personally benefit from the oil trade.
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s advisor Burhan Kuzu commented on his Twitter account about the refugee agreement achieved between the EU and Turkey pn November 29.
He stated that the EU yielded under Turkey’s threat to open its borders to refugees and decided to provide Turkey with financial support for the migrant crisis.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday said he was ready to step down if allegations that Ankara traded oil with the Islamic State (IS) group were proven, local media outlets say.
"The nobility of our nation would require that I would not stay in office," Hürriyet Daily News quotes him as saying.
