Turkey’s Erdogan To Decline Nobel Peace Prize If Awarded.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan will refuse the Nobel Peace Prize if it awarded, AA reported.

The journalist asked the Turkish leader what he would do if he was awarded a similar award. The president said that he would refuse it. According to Erdogan, the Nobel Committee has exhausted itself and is a politically motivated and ideological organization.

Earlier, Ankara opposed the presentation of the Nobel Prize in Literature to the Austrian writer Peter Handke, who stated that he regarded the events in Srebrenica as a conflict between two fraternal peoples. Turkey is among the countries that boycotted the Handke award ceremony.
