Deputy claims Erdoğan prevented medical treatment of Kyrgyz president in Turkey
Date posted: October 8, 2016
Kyrgyz deputy Omurbek Tekebayev has claimed in parliament that President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan prevented the provision of medical treatment to Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev when he fell ill during a visit to Turkey, according to Kyrgyz news agency KirTAG.
The Kyrgyz deputy argued that Erdoğan resented the Kyrgyz president for refusing to cooperate with him in his witch-hunt against the Gülen movement. When Atambayev got sick while in Turkey in September, Erdoğan ordered hospitals across the country to refuse him medical services. Consequently, Atambayev went to Moscow for treatment through the intervention of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The deputy who made the claim also stated that once Erdoğan turns his back on someone, he would never again consider that person a friend.
Atambayev fell ill in İstanbul before a connecting flight to New York.
The İstanbul Metropolitan Municipality (İBB) recently declared a piece of land on which a private high school had been being built to be a green space. The high school is a branch of Fatih Koleji, a private institution affiliated with the Hizmet movement inspired by Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen.

Our new neighbor [Al-Qaeda] poses a great risk for Turkey
Because some European countries failed to share intelligence with Turkey on al-Qaeda militants moving through Turkey to Syria — a dynamic that turned Syria into an Afghanistan and Turkey into a Pakistan — a fairly negative outlook on Turkey emerged. Al-Qaeda and similar organizations were able to step up their presence and activity in Syria by using the Turkey-Syria border, which has become uncontrollable in recent years.
Turkish PM Erdoğan’s way worries and puzzles
Erdoğan’s political calculations for his strategy do not seem to make much sense to many. Why has he chosen to alienate the Hizmet movement now and not after the elections? Why is he even more furious with the remaining independent media than before? Is he doing all this and others to win or is this a heavy gamble, in despair, to lose or win everything?
