FM Çavuşoğlu to Russian FM: ‘Prove Turkey Helps Daesh And I’ll Resign’
In Austria’s capital Vienna for an International Syria Support Group (ISSG) meeting on Tuesday, Cavusoglu told Lavrov that he disagreed with the claims that Turkey turned a blind eye to the terrorist organization Daesh, according to witnesses of the exchange who do not want to be identified.
“You are a serious diplomat, and one of the most experienced diplomat among us. You should not rely upon such frivolous claims,” Cavusoglu said to Lavrov during the meeting, which was shown live in a separate room with other diplomats.
“I am ready to resign if you have any evidence that Turkey helps Daesh, but if you cannot prove your claims, I invite you to Antalya [Cavusoglu’s hometown] as a guest for the rest of your life,” he added.
Russia Foreign minister Sergey Lavrov claims that Turkey supported Daesh terrorist organization.
