Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, "Turkey's common interests is to strengthen peace and fraternity. We should remove prejudices against each other."
Speaking at a ceremony in which the Istanbul branch of his Justice & Development (AK) Party exchanged greetings during the Feast of Ramadan, Erdogan said nobody could label AK Party as separatist.
Erdogan said, "We have talked about a national unity project, but you see that those who have an opposition title oppose this and are in an effort to name white as black. When we propose them to discuss and negotiate, they reject it. Those who are saying 'the country is being divided' are in fact separatists. Nobody can label us as separatist."
Erdogan said nobody should dare to disseminate seeds of separation on the fertile soils of Turkey.
