“The death of America is nearing” – Turkish MP

Turkish former deputy prime minister Hakan Çavuşoğlu said the United States would soon be finished and that Turkey does not fear the power of the dollar, opposition newspaper Cumhuriyet said.

Turkey is embroiled in a diplomatic dispute with its NATO ally the United States over the imprisonment of several U.S. citizens and a range of other issues. The row has contributed to the fall in the lira, already battered by worries over the independence of the central bank and the government’s unwillingness to push up interest rates to tackle inflation.

“States like people are born, grow and die ... Hey America, you have been born, grown, and your death is approaching,” Çavuşoğlu told a crowd at an Eid Al-Adha celebration.

The evidence for this included the United States’ failed project to prop up Kurdish rebels in Syria, as well as its failure to stop Turkey buying air defence systems from Russia, Çavuşoğlu said.

“This nation does not fear the dollar, this nation did not fear heaps of tanks or heaps of iron,” he said.

“With God’s blessing we will overcome this. This increase in the dollar is completely synthetic.”
