İstanbul, Mar 28 (DHA) – Main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu has said he would not hesitate to visit President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan at the presidential palace if Turkey faces a major threat, while responding to a recent mockery by Erdoğan on his visit after the failed coup attempt last year.
“If a similar thing happens again and Turkey faces a threat of a coup, I would go again, as everything else is just a detail when the country itself is at stake,” Kılıçdaroğlu said at an event in the northwestern province of Bursa on Monday, adding that dragging the country to such “unfruitful debates” is wrong.
Erdoğan had said in the Mediterranean province of Antalya on Saturday that Kılıçdaroğlu had visited him at the palace after the coup attempt, breaking his earlier vow not to go.
“That person said ‘I will not go there.’ But he did come in the end. I knew he would come. Their words are not valid,” he stated, referring to the CHP head.
Erdoğan, Kılıçdaroğlu, Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım and Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) leader Devlet Bahçeli met at the palace in Ankara on July 25, 2016, only 10 days after the foiled military coup attempt, to discuss measures against the coup plotters.
