ERBIL, Kurdistan Region–The United States will have to eventually decide which it wants, to retain friendly relations with Turkey or continue to host the US-based Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned.
“Sooner or later the US will make a choice. Either Turkey or FETO,” Erdogan, in reference to the Gulen network in Turkey.
“Either the coup-plotting terrorist FETO or the democratic country Turkey. It has to make this choice,” he stressed.
Erdogan made these remarks on Wednesday while addressing a large crowd in front of the Presidential Palace in Ankara.
Ankara blames Gulen and his followers in Turkey for orchestrating the failed July 15 coup attempt and has demanded the US extradite him. The US said it will only do so if Turkey’s claims are backed up by concrete evidence.
The Turkish president, in his speech, compared the Gulen movement with the Islamic State and the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).
“Those who follow the Pennsylvania-based charlatan who sold his soul to the devil, or Daesh [ISIS], which shed Muslim blood, or the PKK that also has shed blood for 30 years to divide the country and the nation, will all lose in the end,” he said.
Erdogan also told Turks to always stay on guard and be vigilant saying that, “betrayal can come from anywhere and anyone.”
“Democracy watch cannot be only kept in certain hours, in certain places,” he said, saying Turks must defend democracy 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.
