Turkey’s Erdogan Calls Syria’s Assad a Terrorist, Says Impossible to Continue With Him


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday called Syrian President Bashar al-Assad a terrorist and said it was impossible for Syrian peace efforts to continue with him.

Turkey has demanded the removal of Assad from power and backed rebels fighting to overthrow him, but it has toned down its demands since it started working with Assad’s allies Russia and Iran for a political resolution.

“Assad is definitely a terrorist who has carried out state terrorism,” Erdogan told a televised news conference with his Tunisian counterpart Beji Caid Essebsi in Tunis.

“It is impossible to continue with Assad. How can we embrace the future with a Syrian president who has killed close to a million of his citizens?” he said, in some of his harshest comments for weeks.

  1. Erdogan is a RACIST! How dare he talk about a Syrian that way! I call on the UN to condemn in the strongest terms, this racist.

  2. This is curious. How does a murderer in a head of state endure? Could Obama have had plans to remove? What is Trump’s plan?

    Willing to think that Erdogan is smart to think that the Bashar Assad regime is indeed terror, yet Mr. Erdogan is so anti-Israel and anti-east (Russia) that we can still see that he is not well our ally in America.

    I wonder if there is a place for the world to improve this situation. It has not happened and I myself would have wondered if there are more considerations other than just a future stable Syria. A total discouraged battlefield and discouraged home.
