Recep Tayyip Erdogan is the former Prime Minister and current President of Turkey. In 2001, Erdogan became one of the founders of the Justice and Development Party (AKP), which has a mildly Islamic background.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has praised plans for a national polar station in the Antarctic to be built by 2019. It will put Ankara on par with almost 30 other countries having a voice on human activity there.
Turkey has proposed that it co-produce Russia’s next-generation S-500 air systems, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said. It comes as Washington is trying to dissuade Ankara –and prospective buyer Riyadh– from acquiring the S-400.
Turkey didn’t acquire the Russian-built S-400 air defense systems for them to collect dust and may use them, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said, adding the purchase was to reduce Ankara’s dependency on US arms supplies.
Austria’s move to close mosques and expel “foreign-funded” imams has infuriated Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, warning of a war “between cross and crescent” and threatening that Ankara will not sit idle.
President Erdogan warned NATO ally the US that it should behave more like a strategic partner rather than place legal hurdles for Turkish arms deals. The remark was in response to US plans to block F-35 sales to Ankara.
