In a recent interview with France 24 channel, chair of Turkey’s AKP (Justice and Development Party) and the president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan gave statements mainly on the Qatar crisis, US support to YPG, and the Justice March of the opposition in Turkey.
Repeating on previous statements, Erdoğan said the demands of the Arab countries from Qatar are ‘unacceptable’ and reaffirmed Turkey’s ‘loyalty to Qatar’.’We can close our base in Qatar only if such request is received from Qatar’, the president said.
As the arming of YPG forces in northern Syria by the USA in fight against the ISIL militants in the region, Erdoğan said ‘it is impossible to believe that the weapons provided to the YPG will be recollected after the fight is over’ and added: “If we get a threat from the YPG, we will launch an operation together with FSA”.
When the Justice March was mentioned, he said: “They (the opposition) say that they’ll finalize it (the Justice March) with a meeting in Maltepe (of İstanbul). Unless violence occurs, I will allow it completely. But if a slightest unlawfulness takes place, the necessary intervention will be made”.
The main opposition party CHP has announced that the Justice March, which has turned into a grand march of almost all opposition forces, will be finalized with a grand meeting in Maltepe district of İstanbul on Sunday, July 9th.
Erdoğan had previously referred to the marchers as 'terrorists' by saying 'the path of the Justice March is the path of FETÖ and PKK'.
