We will expel “terrorist” students at elite university - Erdoğan
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has pledged to expel students at Boğaziçi University who protested the youth branch of his Justice and Development Party when it set up a stall to celebrate the country’s military victory in the Syrian province of Afrin, Russian-owned news site Sputnik said.
“God-fearing, national and local youth were distributing Turkish delight for Afrin,” Erdoğan said at a party congress in the Black Sea town of Samsun on Saturday.
“While these youth were giving out Turkish delight, those Communist, traitor-to-the-nation youth attempted to break up the stall. They are terrorist youths.”
Erdoğan promised to do everything he could to identify the far-left protesters.
“When we make out their appearances, we will not allow them the right to study at this university,” he said. “Universities cannot raise terrorist youths.”
