The United States Tuesday publicly criticized Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for meeting with a Palestinian extremist group’s leaders who are designated terrorists by Washington and have a $5 million bounty for any information on their whereabouts.
We strongly object to President Erdogan hosting two Hamas leaders. Hamas is designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S and EU. This outreach isolates Turkey and undercuts global efforts to counter terrorism. https://t.co/RVEuZPFg6d— Morgan Ortagus (@statedeptspox) August 25, 2020
