Turkish activists conveyed a message previously sent by opposition leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan advising him not to be hostile to Damascus amid hopes of restoring normal relations between Ankara and Damascus.
Activists published a letter sent by the head of the Republican People’s Party, Kılıçdaroğlu, to then Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in 2012 offering solutions.
Kilicdaroglu said in the letter that the government should calmly continue its policy towards Syria and warned, in particular, because of its consequences in the coming years.
Kılıçdaroğlu pointed out that Turkey should be on the side of peace and reconciliation and submitted proposals prepared by his party for a solution in the form of a file.
Kılıçdaroglu told the Sozcu newspaper about this, referring to Erdogan’s desire to restore relations with Damascus: “All our proposals were then rejected. Now he goes from house to house, begging to fix all the relationships.”
In his statement, the opposition leader added: “Now he has come to what I said, but, unfortunately, the interlocutors have turned away and do not trust Erdogan. Of course, we want relations with Syria to improve and all relations in the Middle East to improve.”
