Erdogan says Trump Jerusalem move puts region in 'ring of fire'

ANKARA, Dec 7, 2017 (BSS/AFP) - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday lashed out at his US counterpart Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, saying it would put the region in a "ring of fire".

"Taking this type of step puts the world, especially the region, in a ring of fire. Hey Trump, what do you want to do? What kind of approach is this? Political leaders do not stir things up, they seek to make peace," Erdogan said in Ankara.
