Report informs citing Haber7, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said addressing an Medicine Day event in Beştepe National Congress and Culture Center.

"We already knew their low morality from killing of 8,000 Bosnians. Nobody should try to give us morality lessons, especially not those who have blood on their hands", Erdoğan said.
