Abdullah (left) and Erdogan
“The fact that terrorists are going to Europe is part of Turkish policy and Turkey keeps on getting a slap on the hand, but they are let off the hook.”
Abdullah made his remarks during a wide-ranging debriefing to Congress on 11 January , the day a meeting with the US president, Barack Obama, was cancelled.
Abdullah said that Erdogan believed in a “radical Islamic solution to the region”.
Abdullah claimed that “radicalisation was being manufactured in Turkey” and asked the US senators why the Turks were training the Somali army.
