Today is Turkey’s second day of military action in the Syrian border. Many countries have criticized Turkey, citing concerns over the action, saying it would pose more threat to the already unstable Middle East. Opponents include countries such as the European Union, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Egypt.
However, the Turkish president has given a two-pronged answer to all critics. The Turkish president said that “those who object to Turkey’s move are not sincere themselves”. The Turkish president warned the European Union that if European countries declared the Turkish offensive an attack in Syria, they would send 36 million Syrian refugees to Europe.
Erdogan warns that Turkey will open the gates and send 36 million migrants to Europe. The Turkish president criticized Egypt and other countries, saying, “These people are not sincere, they only make things as we take action; this is a difference between us and them.”
Tayyip Erdogan quoted Egyptian President Abdul Fatah el-Sisi as saying how Sisi can condemn Turkey because democracy was killed in Egypt during his time. Turkey has launched ground and air operations against Kurdish militias in Syria from October 9, killing 16 members of Syrian Kurdish militias during this operation.
