Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan criticized Turkish opposition leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu ‘s hostile statements in a speech he delivered during his visit to Gaziantep city, stressing that “the doors of his country will remain open to the Syrians.”
Erdogan said, “Mr. Kemal is not comfortable with the presence of the Syrians because he does not understand the meaning of brotherhood in which we believe, and we did according to the divine command, the believers are but brothers, and we are not looking for a place to send our Syrian brothers to, as the opposition leader threatens.”
He added, “We have opened our doors to those who fled from fear of arms and left their homes to protect their lives, and we will open our doors for them today and tomorrow, as we opened for them previously, and noted that Turkey has nearly 5 million Syrians.”
It is noteworthy that Kılıçdaroğlu vowed last Thursday again to return the Syrian refugees to their country with a “drum and bands” if the opposition take the power.
