Erdogan questions EU ‘sincerity’ in fight against Kurdish rebels

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday questioned the EU's "sincerity" in its support for Turkey's fight against rebels from the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

In a speech in Istanbul, Erdogan accused Europe of "hypocrisy" over the state's resurgent battle with the PKK, which has been blacklisted by Turkey and its Western allies as a terror group.

"How can you talk about sincerity when the terrorist organization is allowed to erect a tent in Brussels, outside the European Council building?" he said, referring to a tent set up by Kurdish activists during an EU-Turkey summit last week
