What’s Behind Erdogan’s Accusations of West Allegedly ‘Supporting Terrorism’

A Turkish expert spoke with Sputnik about a recent claim by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who accused the West of allegedly supporting terrorism.

On Sunday, Turkish President Erdogan said that the “West’s shadow” is behind terrorist groups, including Daesh and al-Qaeda.

Turkey wants to tackle the terrorist threat in the Middle East jointly with other members of the international community, and this is what the Turkish president tried to underline during his recent speech, political expert Mazhar Bagli said.

“But, unfortunately, in response to Turkey’s appeal, major international players have not formed a diplomatic union,” the analyst stated.

I believe that the main force that prevents such attempts is the United States, even though it constantly declares that it sees Turkey as its ally and supports it.

This is especially evident in the military support that the US is providing to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), in order to maintain its positions in the region,” Bagli said, supposedly referring to US arms deliveries to the Syrian Kurds, including to YPG fighters, who Ankara believes are linked to the PKK, which is banned in Turkey.

Bagli noted that in his statement Erdogan urged the US and the West to give up “the support of terrorism.”

“Today, when PKK terrorists are gaining strength in Syria, we see that support of terrorism can have various forms, including military assistance provided to terrorists by major international players,” the expert said.

He also added that Turkey opposed such a situation because “it knows from its own experience that wherever terrorism comes, under whatever mask it hides, all structures that use violent, terrorist methods to achieve their goals are a threat to the future of the whole world.”

  1. Perhaps he should be telling this to the UK, after all it is the UK that tell the US what to do. Then again perhaps it will fall on deaf ears.

    1. Just months ago, thisasshole was stealing oil from Syria with the help of ISIS, now Russia has destroyed them, he,s worried about Terrorists?? What a cunt, Putin don,t trust this asshole what a cunt!

  2. LOL THERE ARE A LOT OF REASONS WHY ERDOGAN WANTS OUT OF THE AMERICAN HEGEMONY.

    THE KURDS

    THE WESTERN COLLAPSING ECONOMY

    CONTINUOUS WAR. I THINK TURKEY WANTED TO BE IN NATO TO BE PART OF THE EU BUT NOW WHO WANTS TO BELONG TO THE EU? FURTHERMORE GB, FRANCE, GERMANY AND ITLAY HAVE SLASHED THEIR MILITARY BUDGET WHICH WOULD LEAVE TURKEY HOLDING THE BAG. AND I DON’T THINK TURKEY HAS A DOG IN THE RACE WHEN IT COMES TO FIGHTING A WAR AGAINST CHINA, IRAN AND IRAN.

    I’VE READ ENOUGH TO REALIZE THAT MANY HEADS OF STATE REALIZE THAT THE AMERICAN HEGEMONY HAS HAD ITS DAY AND IS NOTING BUT A THUGOCRACY TODAY. AND TRUMP’S SABRE RATTLING IS PROOF OF THAT.

    1. We all know the CRIMINALS that run all Western Governments are backing Terrorism, it does not matter what they are named ISIS, DAESH, AL-QUAEDA, their AGENDA is all heading to a one world DICTATED COMMUNISTS GOVERNMENT.

  3. He figured out the the Khazarians of that run the West plan on partially utilizing the Kurds in the coming war with Iran for Israeli Middle East hegemony. The same Kurds that claim a large chunk of Turkey.

    Turkey feels threatened by the idea that the Kurds will be armed and given a chunk of Iran, and then be that much more powerful against Turkey.
