Speaking after international condemnation following the arrest of two leaders of the pro-Kurdish People’s Democratic Party (HDP) and 11 other MPs from the group on Friday, Mr Erdogan accused Europe of aiding terrorism by supporting Kurdish militants.
“Europe, as a whole, is abetting terrorism. Even though they declared the PKK [Kurdistan Workers’ Party] a terrorist organisation, this is clear,” he said in a televised speech on Sunday, Hurriyet Daily News reports.
“I don’t care if they [the West] call me a dictator or whatever else. It goes in one ear, out the other.”
