İSTANBUL — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is accusing Washington of "imperialism" in its efforts to oust Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
Erdogan's latest verbal salvo in support of his ally Maduro came amid growing U.S. pressure on Ankara to end support for the beleaguered Venezuelan leader.
"İs Venezuela your instrument?" said Erdogan, chiding U.S. President Donald Trump in an address to his parliamentary deputies Tuesday. "Their president came through elections. What right do you have to appoint another? And where is democracy? How can this be accepted?
"We do not accept the world where the one who is stronger is right. We are against such an imperialist position," Erdogan added to rapturous applause from his deputies and cheering supporters.
