Today's Quote: Erdogan and Death Penalty
"Today is there no capital punishment in America? In Russia? In China? In countries around the world? Only in European Union countries is there no capital punishment."
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan dismisses EU leaders' move to warn against a suspension of his country's membership bid in case the death penalty is reintroduced.
Ankara abolished capital punishment in 2004, in line with EU requirements, as it had been granted candidate status a few years earlier.
