'Strong position' on terrorism a key G20 outcome

 The “strong position” adopted by the G20 in its stand against terrorism was one of the most important outcomes of the summit, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Monday.

Speaking at the end of the gathering of world leaders in Belek, Antalya province, he said: “Terror has no religion, nationality, race or region. It is an insult against humanity to link terrorism with any religion.”

Addressing journalists, Erdogan said terrorism and the refugee crisis facing Europe must be tackled as separate issues.

The president was speaking three days after 129 people were killed in synchronized gun and bomb attacks across Paris. The apparent links between the attackers and Syria have raised concerns that those opposed to further immigration to the EU could exploit the killings.
