Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on Wednesday that if the Western countries are labeling another leader of a country as dictator for his criticism to the West, he or she is a good person to him.

Speaking at a meeting of the Standing Committee for Economic and Commercial Cooperation of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in İstanbul, Erdoğan accused the Western countries of giving red carpet treatment to the bloody-handed tyrants who carry out their orders.

He further said that the West labels those who criticize the policies of the Western countries as dictators.

As long as we keep silent, They (the West) will continue to give a red carpet treatment to those bloody-handed tyrants who follow their orders. But they will label those who criticize their policies as dictators,” he said.

He also added “If they call someone dictator. He is a good person to me.”
