However, President Erdogan has said that ambassadors have no authority to give orders to Turkey.

He said ambassadors “cannot dare to come to the Turkish foreign ministry and give orders.”

” gave the necessary order to our foreign minister and said what must be done. These 10 ambassadors must be declared persona non grata at once. You will sort it out immediately,” he added

However, what will happen next is unpredictable.

The president stressed that the ambassadors should either understand Turkey or leave.
