Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s strong-worded criticism against Israel and the United States over the former’s military operations in Gaza has transformed into a diplomatic spat between Ankara and Washington, with Erdogan calling for the U.S. to be “self-critical” over its Israel policy.
“If America is still saying that ‘Israel is using its right to self-defense’ then it should be critical of itself. It’s America who is offensive,” Erdogan told TGRT on July 20 in an interview.
Erdogan’s remarks came in response to Jan Psaki, the spokesperson of the State Department, who said on July 18 that the “U.S. believes [Erdogan’s] statements were offensive and wrong.”
