BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:40 P.M.) – If Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad wins a democratic election in Syria, Turkey will consider working with him, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Sunday.

“If it is democratic election, and if it is a credible one then everybody should consider (working with him),” Cavusoglu said during a press conference in Doha.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan previously stated that he has no interest in working with the ‘murderer’ Assad, as he accused him of killing more than 1,000,000 of his own people.

Turkey had previously cutoff all diplomatic ties to Syria in 2012 and since then, they have actively backed the Syrian opposition forces against the government.

Turkey has no ground for labelling other people as “murderers”. Just look at the Ottoman Empire – it’s loaded with numerous and serious human right violations, prosecution, discrimination, deception and barbaric expansion. After all the killing their ancestors have committed, they feel they have the right to excuse others of killing. Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting. To add insult to injury there is evidence that Turkish people ‘celebrate’ the Armenian genocide on an annual basis. I have seen some footage of this whilst on a holiday to Turkey.
