Erdogan denies security of Afghanistan with existence of US

(MENAFN) Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated that Afghanistan was not more secure with the US military’s existence in the nation.

The president noted in an interview with CBS News' Margaret Brennan on Tuesday in New York, which was aired on Sunday: “with the American presence dating back to two decades, the region was not any safer. On the contrary, every day the region lost more blood.”

Erdogan added the US should question its 20-year existence there and departure too.

Erdogan further said that Turkey could perhaps assume duty of securing the airport but on the condition that the US offers logistic backing, comprising financial support and move of arms and ammunition, there to Turkey.
