The Turkish Parliament rejected an opposition motion on Friday to censure Minister of Foreign Affairs Ahmet Davutoğlu over accusations that he conducts a dangerous and risky foreign policy, after hearing his defense of Turkey's policy on Syria.
The Republican People's Party (CHP) submitted a censure motion against Davutoğlu on Oct. 1, accusing him of conducting a dangerous and risky foreign policy, while at the same time concealing from the Turkish public numerous facts related to Turkey's Syrian refugee camps.
Responding to the accusations, Davutoğlu stated that both Kılıçdaroğlu and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad blame the Turkish government for the recent tension arising between Turkey and Syria and drew attention to Kılıçdaroğlu's defamation campaign against him.
“I will file a compensation case against CHP leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu and donate the money to the victims of the brutal Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria,” an angry Davutoğlu said on Friday.
In the preamble of the censure motion, it was also noted that a delegation of CHP members and deputies, after receiving permission on Aug. 25 from the Prime Ministry's Disaster and Emergency Management Directorate (AFAD) to visit the camp sites where Syrians were temporarily being accommodated in the Hatay province, wanted to visit one of the camps but was denied entry.
Davutoğlu said the CHP failed to give credit to reports made by the United Nations and a Turkish parliamentary commission on the camps.
