Speaking to the press after the G20 summit in Hamburg, Erdogan accused Demirtas of using his “Kurdish brothers” to murder other Kurds.
“Turkey is a state of law. The person you mentioned [Selahattin Demirtas] is a terrorist. He is such a terrorist that he made all my Kurdish brothers take to the streets and then got these 53 Kurdish brothers murdered by some other Kurds. This is only one of the crimes he committed. There are many other similar ones.”
Erdogan’s statement refers to the “2014 Kobani protests,” large-scale protests by Kurds in Turkey as a spillover of a crisis in Kobani.
