At a time when Saudi Arabia faced a terrorist attack by the Houthi terrorist militia backed by the mullahs' regime on its oil facilities to Armco, the Turkish regime, led by Recep Tayyip Erdogan, made contradictory statements, confirming Turkey's continued support for the organizations countries supporting terrorism.

Ankara Summit

On Sunday, September 16, during the tripartite summit on Syria in the Turkish capital Ankara, with the participation of the presidents of Turkey, Iran and Russia, Erdogan was asked about the terrorist attack that targeted two oil facilities belonging to Saudi Aramco on 14 September. The attacks were caused by the Yemen war, an explicit indication that he accepted the kingdom's facilities being targeted by any terrorist attack.

On March 30, 2015, the Turkish president announced his support for the Saudi-led Arab coalition's operations against the Iranian-backed Houthi militia, warning against the danger of Tehran to the Middle East. However, when the Aramco attack took place Erdogan became in line with the Iranian approach, and this is normal.

Storm of criticism

The Turkish president's contradictory statements were met with a huge wave of criticism from various parties. They published a number of pictures that showed Erdogan next to the prime ministers of Israel and shaking hands with Iran's terrorists.

In a tweet, the Saudi writer Hamad Al Majid said, “Mr. Erdogan, you were not honest or fair in your question; because you know that our war in Yemen is not with the Yemenis, but with the Houthi militias, Iran's claws to occupy Yemen and one of the threats for the stability of our country. ”

Yemen's response to Erdogan

In a related context, Yemeni Information Minister Moamar al-Iryani launched a justification for the cowardly terrorist act, and the Yemeni Prime Minister to explore events in Yemen; to settle accounts, and to keep a low profile of the real party behind the attack.

Al-Iryani confirmed that the Saudi-led coalition heeded the call of Yemeni President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi to support the legitimate government, army and the people of Yemen in the battle to restore the state and topple the coup of the Iranian-backed Houthi militia, nearly seven months after storming the capital Sanaa and controling over institutions.
