Turkish leader's on-stage interaction with sobbing girl draws fire

The main objective of this armored vehicles – to minimize human losses

Some people were appalled and took to Twitter to criticise the president.

"Look, look, look, what is there?" Girl, what are you doing here? She held her salute, but her face began to crumple in anxiety as she was lifted out of the crowd to meet the president. "We have our maroon berets here".

Mr. Erdogan kissed her on both cheeks, but by then she was in tears.

Algeria's oil and gas company Sonatrach has agreed with Turkish firms Ronesans and Bayegan to build a petrochemical facility worth $1 billion in Turkey, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday.

Nationalist sentiment, including dressing children in military uniforms, has been high as Turkey clashes with Syrian Kurds.

. Yes, a lieutenant colonel of gendarmes' special operations unit, praise be!

Supporters of Mr Erdogan's Justice and Development Party at the rally appeared to cheer in response.

Student intake at Islamic schools has increased sharply since 2012 and the Turkish government plans to double its funding for religious upper schools. Is Turkey our friend or our enemy?

Mr Erdogan's opponents criticise him for using the funerals of dead soldiers and children for highly politicised speeches. "Oh my God, I am shocked".

One observers was appalled by Erdogan's statement, saying it was the duty of the state to protect children, not to "kill" them.

Meral Aksener of the IYI Party, also known as the "Good Party" because it was established to offer an alternative to Erdogan's authoritarian style ("iyi" is the Turkish word for "good"), accused the president of "following Hamas" by endorsing martyrdom for tots.

Turkish President Erdogan's words toward a girl in a military uniform that she'd gain respect if she died while fighting has raised condemnation across the country.
