Rejected Erdogan Uses Private Dinner to Shame Obama Administration


While Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was denied a formal meeting with President Obama during his Washington visit, he was granted an audience before a number of DC think tanks and used the opportunity to bash US foreign policy.

While it was initially reported that Erdogan would not meet with Obama during his five-day visit to the US capitol for a nuclear summit, later indications were that he would conduct a face-to-face with Vice President Joe Biden. Erdogan would also meet with Obama briefly for an informal “conversation.”

This lack of formal diplomatic acknowledgement has been viewed as a sign of the strained relationship between Turkey and the US, driven by disagreements over Turkish Kurds and Erdogan’s increasingly tyrannical administration.

Speaking during a private dinner at the St. Regis Hotel on Tuesday, Erdogan made his own frustrations abundantly clear, blasting the Obama administration for backing the Kurds in the fight against Daesh, also known as IS/Islamic State.

“He kept coming back to the issue: Terrorists are terrorists – there are no good ones,” said one attendee, speaking to Foreign Policy Magazine
