Australia Summons Turkish Ambassador for "Offensive" Erdogan Comments

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been rebuked by Australia’s leader for "very offensive" comments he made at a political rally in the wake of last week’s New Zealand massacre, which was instigated by an Australian and killed 50 Muslim worshipers at two mosques, Bloomberg reports.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison summoned the Turkish ambassador to a meeting after Erdogan appeared to threaten antipodean tourists who visit Turkey’s Gallipoli peninsula. The site recognized as a significant World War I battleground by Australians and New Zealanders and every year, thousands travel to Gallipoli for WWI commemorations held on April 25.
