The leader of Turkey’s main opposition, the Republican People’s Party, has spoken out for the first time regarding the controversies surround the country’s intelligence chief Hakan Fidan.
Kemal Kilicdaroglu, spoke to Turkey’s Radikal newspaper, saying that his party will stand by the MIT undersecretary. ‘It is not right to target a bureaucrat’ he said, before adding ‘however, the MIT undersecretary is not the prime focus of this issue.’
Responding to accusations that his party has not shown support for the nation’s intelligence agency and chief, Kilicdaroglu said: ‘We are not fully aware of the situation. If they want to form a consensus they need to brief the opposition. If the MIT chief has been the target of an attack, we will stand by our fellow citizen. Turkey’s interests are our priority. However, because the government does not have a state policy, it only expresses its own attitudes and policies, to which it becomes a prisoner,’ he said.Last Mod: 26 Ekim 2013, 12:57
