Main opposition leader ‘glad’ Turkish PM wants to sue him over al-Assad comparison

 

Main opposition leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu has said he is “glad” that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is planning to sue him over his remarks likening him to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“He is going to refer me to the court, over my accusations. In fact, I am very glad [about it]. Do you know why? Because that way we will shed light into what happened in Uludere,” Kılıçdaroğlu told reporters May 18, referring to the military airstrike that killed 34 civilians in the southeastern province of Şırnak in December 2011.
