In his statement, the president underlined Turkey's commitment to fight Daesh terror in every possible way, saying that he will resign from his post if any oil purchase from Daesh is proven. Erdoğan said, "As soon as such a claim is proved, the nobility of our nation requires [me] to do this."
"I will not remain in this post. But I am asking Mr. Putin, would you remain?"
Erdoğan also called on his Russian counterpart to explain Russian purchases of Daesh oil.
He stated that a Russian-Syrian citizen has been buying oil from Daesh and then selling it to Assad regime, which he said was also confirmed by U.S. sources. "First they [Russia] should give an account of this," he added.
