Turkey’s Erdogan slams US, Israel over Pakistan
Istanbul, Jan 5 : Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday blasted the United States and Israel for their meddling in the internal affairs of Pakistan and Iran, The Express Tribune reported.
The same intervention was also seen in countries like Iraq, Syria, Libya, Tunisia, Sudan and Chad, Erdogan told the press in Istanbul before leaving for France for a visit.
“Look, all these countries are Islamic countries and their peoples are all Muslims,” he said.
Since protests broke out across Iran last week, US President Donald Trump has voiced his support for the demonstrators, while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised them for taking to the streets to protest against the government.
In addition, Trump has lashed out at Pakistan for not rendering enough help to Washington to hunt down Afghan terrorists.
