Turkey condemned comments made by Republican presidential hopeful Rick Perry on Monday in which he said that the country is being ruled by “Islamic terrorists.”
“We strongly condemn the unfounded and inappropriate allegations expressed yesterday evening about our country during a debate held in South Carolina by Texas Governor Rick Perry …,” a Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Tuesday.
Perry is quoted as saying: “Obviously when you have a country that is being ruled by what many would perceive to be Islamic terrorists, when you start seeing that sort of activity against their own citizens, then yes – not only is it time for us to have a conversation about whether or not they belong in NATO, but it’s time for the United States, when we look at their foreign aid, to go to zero with it.”
