Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that he will meet with his US counterpart Joe Biden in Glasgow, Scotland and that the F-35 aircraft file will be the most important item in the talks.
This came in statements he made to reporters on the plane during his return from Azerbaijan, which he visited on Tuesday.
Glasgow hosts the twenty-sixth session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
On the subject of the ten ambassadors in Ankara, Erdogan said, “The step we have taken is not a show of force against anyone, but only means that Turkey’s workers cannot interfere in its internal affairs.”
He added, “The ambassadors working for Turkey should know the consequences of things well, and anyone who does not know this, we have reminded him of Article 41 of the Vienna Convention.”
Commenting on the US newspaper headlines in this context, the Turkish president said: “I am in an offensive position, and there is never in my dictionary the word retreat.”
