Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, during his visit to Pakistan, has said that the US administration supports “terrorism.”
Erdogan touched on Israeli attack on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla that killed nine Turkish human rights activists on May 31 and condemned the US “double standards,” noting that Washington openly “supported the Israeli state terrorism,” despite its claims that it supports peace, Turkey’s Milliyet newspaper reported on Saturday.
“The nine Turkish martyrs were shot by 21 bullets fired by Israeli soldiers. We sent the autopsy reports and pictures to the US and the EU, but the US was not ready to condemn the state terrorism,” Erdogan said.
“This demonstrated the US support for an international terrorist that had killed our nationals in international waters,” he stated.
Erdogan also noted that both Turkey and Pakistan have suffered much from “military dictators” that were backed by the US.
