Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan assessed the statement by ambassadors of ten countries, including Canada and the United States, after the October 23 decision to expel them from the country, as a “step back.” He indicated that after that the diplomats will be more careful in their statements.

The leader stressed that the Turkish justice will not listen to anyone’s orders, and the statements of the expelled ambassadors were directed against the sovereignty of the state.
“No one can stay in Turkey if this person does not show respect for our country. Their new statement shows that they have taken a step back. Now they will be more careful in their statements, ”Erdogan added.
The President concluded that no action is taken in Turkey without a reason. He urged to recognize the greatness of his country, or “continue to fight in the pit of arrogance and hatred until you suffocate.”
Earlier, Canada and the United States sent assurances to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of respect for Turkish laws and international conventions after the Turkish authorities expelled ambassadors from 10 states. It is reported that Erdogan “favorably accepted” the statement of the American side and the same messages from Canadian diplomats.
On October 23, Erdogan instructed the country’s Foreign Ministry to declare ambassadors of 10 countries persona non grata, who called on him to release Osman Kavala, a human rights activist, founder of the Anadolu Kültür AŞ cultural foundation, from prison. We are talking about the ambassadors of Germany, Denmark, Canada, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, USA, France, Finland and Sweden.
