US Secretary of State John Kerry on his visit to Turkey Friday took the Turkish prime minister to task for his comments equating Zionism with a “crime against humanity,” saying that such remarks were “objectionable.”
US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday he found "objectionable" the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's branding of Zionism as a crime against humanity.
"We not only disagree with it, but we find it objectionable," Kerry said at a joint press conference with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu. "I raised the speech with the foreign minister and I will raise it with the prime minister."
