According to the news agency awdnews.com, during the conversation behind closed doors, Russian President Vladimir Putin called Erdogan a dictator and threatened to send him to hell together with the ISIS terrorists, Joinfo.ua reports.
It is reported that Vladimir Putin violated diplomatic procedures, and had a row with the Turkish Ambassador in Moscow, Mr. Umit Erdim, and warned him that the Russian Federation might break off diplomatic relations with his country unless the President Recep Tayyip Erdogan ceased supporting the ISIS rebels in Syria, where the only Russian naval base in the Mediterranean is.
The leader of the Russian Federation allegedly made a long speech condemning the Turkish foreign policy and malevolent role of Turkey in the support of al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria, Iraq and Yemen, The Moscow Times informs. The conflict conversation with the Turkish diplomat turned into a bitter debate, the publication writes.
According to the leaked information obtained by the edition of The Moscow Times, a meeting between Vladimir Putin and Turkish Ambassador was characterized by strong mutual resentment.
Ambassador Umit Erdim rejected all accusations and blamed Russia for a brutal and protracted civil war in Syria. “Then tell your dictator president he can go to hell along with his ISIS terrorist and I shall make Syria to nothing but a ‘Big Stalingrad’ , for Erdoğan and his Saudi allies are no vicious than Adolf Hitler,” said Putin during the 2-hour meeting with the Turkish emissary behind closed doors.
“How hypocrite is your president as he advocates democracy and lambaste the military coup d’état in Egypt and he simultaneously condones all terrorist activities aimed to overthrow Syrian president!” Putin said.
The Russian leader said that Russia would not stop supporting the legitimate Syrian authorities and would cooperate with its allies – Iran and China – to find a political way to solve the endless civil war in Syria, “which descended the 23-million Arab nation to an utter ethnic and religious anarchy.”
