#5507 | 00:42

Dmitri Kisiliov a senior Russia 1 TV host, said on his May 22 talk show that since Erdogan was sending weapons and terrorists to Syria, where they would join Jabhat Al-Nusra and the Islamic State, "according to the proverb 'Tell me who your friend is,' Erdogan is a terrorist."


Following are excerpts



Dmitri Kisiliov: Wishing to expand his territory, Erdogan is sending caravans with weapons and terrorists to Syria. They join the Islamic State as well as Jabhat al-Nursa, which Ankara considers only formally to be a terrorist organization. In other words, they are terrorists for everyone else, but Erdogan considers them in practical terms, to be almost allies. So according to the proverb "Tell me who your friend is," Erdogan is a terrorist.
