Erdogan’s regime’s policy poses a threat to Europe: Czech writer

Czech writer “Lokash Lahutan” has affirmed that the policies of the current Turkish regime, led by Recep Tayyib Erdogan, pose a threat to Europe.

In an article posted on the website of the "Reflex" Magazine, Lahutan said that “the matter is not only related to the aggressive policy practiced by this regime against Cyprus, Greece and other countries, but also to its attempts to affect the internal situation in many European countries.”

“The long-term goal of the Turkish fascist regime is to create a strong position that can help it in achieving its expansionist ambitions in a more aggressive manner than now,” said the Czech writer, clarifying that this regime’s policies towards Arab and North African countries may lead to more wars and deteriorating security conditions and thus new migration waves to Europe.

He criticized the European Union’s policy towards the Turkish regime, saying that it is similar to the policy of concessions that Europe adopted towards Nazi Germany.
