Ashton: Unacceptable for Erodan to call Zionism ‘crime'
EU High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs Catherine Ashton criticized Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan for saying, “Zionism is a crime against humanity.” Ashton said that his statement was “unacceptable.”


Two weeks ago, Erodan said, “Zionism, anti-semitism, fascism, and islamophobia are crimes against humanity.” US Secretary of State John Kerry also criticized Erodan’s statement. Turkey hopes to join the European Union. (AFP)
