Those claiming Turkey helps Daesh are enemies of Turkey, Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag tweeted Sunday.

Bekir Bozdag said the “dastard” and “dark” international powers, who created the Daesh terrorist organization, slander Turkey by claiming the country helps Daesh.

"Whoever voices the slander that 'Turkey helped and helps Daesh terrorist organization', you should know that they are Turkey's enemies," he said.

Bozdag said Daesh's aim was to make people hate Islam and Muslims.

He underlined that Daesh terrorists were from more than 140 countries.

"Can a terrorist organization, whose history is no longer than 10 years, do this? Can a terrorist organization, whose history is no longer than 10 years, train terrorists, who know languages of 140 countries and convince people to come to Iraq and Syria to die and kill? It cannot do this of course.

“Undoubtedly, the ones who encourage participation from more than 140 countries to join Daesh are the international powers who created this ‘project organization’," he said.

Bozdag also said Daesh was the enemy of Islam and Turkey.

"The fight against this international 'project enemy' is the common task for all of us," he added.
