Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan criticized Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Wednesday and said he would never accept reconciliation with him.
During a speech in Ankara on Wednesday night, the Turkish president spoke about recent executions in Egypt and criticized what he saw as a European concession with Sisi despite these events.
"It is a massacre," he said, referring to the presence of senior European officials at the Arab-European conference held in Sharm el-Sheikh last month.
"If you were truly sincere, even if you were democrats, you would not have called for a state that would execute such a death machine," said the Turkish president. "You did not feel the pain of the young people who were executed, especially the nine who were recently executed."
"Why many of these things (in reference to the executions), why again? Because I can not sit face-to-face on the same table with a non-democratic person who (President Mohamed) Mursi, who received 52% of the votes, in prison he and his companions. "
In the same speech, the Turkish president criticized Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who recently described Erdogan as a dictator. Erdogan also discussed the assassination of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
"We are following the case of Khashoggi, and if necessary we will bring it to the international tribunal," he said. "Did the Europeans raise their voices against the killer of the Muslim journalist (Khashoggi)?"Keywords:
