Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu claimed late on Wednesday that anti-Israel remarks made by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had been misunderstood and taken out of context, and that he rejected censure by a White House spokesman, Turkey’s Hurriyet Daily News reported.
Speaking on Turkish private broadcaster Kanal 24, Davutoğlu said Erdoğan was referring to a “mentality” in his comments claiming that Israel was behind the recent military coup in Egypt.
“He gives an example from a meeting of two years ago [in his speech.] He explains a mentality,” the foreign minister said...No, he explains his mentality. Which is pathological (i.e. completely mental).
|Cuckoo ca-choo, Mr. Erdogan...|
