US has lost 'mediator role' in Middle East: Turkish President Erdogan

US has lost 'mediator role' in Middle East: Turkish President Erdogan

Erdogan, on an official visit to Britain, made the comment in a speech at the Chatham House think tank in London.

The Turkish leader is scheduled to meet Queen Elizabeth II and Prime Minister Theresa May on May 15.

Mr Erdogan has been widely criticised for abandoning the secular principles of the state in Turkey.

Regarding trade in the post-Brexit period, Erdoğan said that the relevant authorities of both sides continue to negotiate a free trade agreement to regulate the commercial operations in the period following the U.K.'s exit from the EU. Addressing British businesspeople, Erdoğan also noted that Turkey offers access to expansive markets of around 1.5 billion people in just a 3 to 4-hour flight, and is thereby offers an important opportunity to expand into new markets.


'By permitting a visit and audience with the Queen, May and Johnson are essentially rolling out the red carpet for a man with a disregard for human rights, who is responsible for alarming oppression and violence'.

Erdogan said a replica of an Ottoman nishan (decoration) awarded by Sultan Selim III to Britain's legendary Admiral Lord Nelson for his service during the French campaign in Egypt in 1798 was placed at the entrance of the hall where the Tatli Dil Forum was held today, showing the deep ties between the two countries. He said that by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the U.S. stands to "lose allies".

"The cooperation we have with the U.K.is well beyond any mechanism that we established with other partners".

Erdogan also criticized US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal, Ynetnews.com reported.
