An attack on the Turkish economy is no different from a strike against the flag, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated in a video message ahead of the Muslim Eid al-Adha festival.
“The attack on our economy has absolutely no difference from attacks on our call to prayer and our flag,” he said referring to the recent Turkish currency crisis, triggered by US economic pressure.
“The goal is the same. The goal is to bring Turkey and the Turkish people to their knees, to take it prisoner.”
Erdogan’s comments come as the U.S. continues its sanctions against Turkey for the detention of American pastor Andrew Brunson.
