Erdogan slams ‘worldwide war of propaganda’ against Turkey


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has lashed at what he claims is a “worldwide war of propaganda” against his country.

“The launching of a worldwide war of propaganda based on lies, slander and distortion, by those who cannot deal with Turkey on the ground will not work,” Erdogan was quoted by Anadolu agency as saying during a meeting of his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) in southern Turkey on Saturday.

“Those who see us as yesterday’s Turkey and treat us in this manner have begun to gradually realize the truth,” Erdogan said, according to the report.
