Baku – APA. Turkey’s main opposition leader, chairman of the Republican People's Party (CHP) Kemal KılıçdaroÄŸlu has lashed out at Erdogan over the latter’s apology to Russia.

At today’s meeting of the CHP parliamentary fraction, Kılıcdaroglu said the current government has made foreign policy a tool in domestic policy, the Turkish newspaper Hurriyet reported.

“This country has permanent interests. Foreign policy must be national. But they use foreign policy issues in domestic policy for their own purposes. Erdogan sent Putin a letter of apology on behalf of the Republic of Turkey. Who are you to apologize on behalf of Turkey?! You cannot apologize to Russia, you do not have the right to do so. Who violated our border? The Russians. Erdogan had said: ‘It’s Russia who must apologize.’ They first roared like lions, and now they’re mewing like cats,” he stressed.
