President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s advisor Yiğit Bulut argued on a TV program on Wednesday that foreign nations desire to be ruled by Turkey.
“They are talking about how they can be ruled from İstanbul in Middle East,” Bulut said. He also added that people in Central Asia and Africa also talk about being ruled from İstanbul.
“The Balkans are turning to Turkey. The Balkans are turning to the center of this geography,” Bulut said. He also argued that people in Europe cannot express this desire due to the pressure from the German government.
