Erdogan slams Nobel laureate Handke Izvor: Anadolija

The 2019 Nobel Prize for literature was awarded to someone who “hailed those who brutally massacred Bosniaks,” Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan said at the Presidential Culture and Grand Awards in Ankara on Thursday.

Erdogan spoke about Austrian writer Peter Handke, a vocal supporter of late Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic who has been accused of being an apologist for Serb war crimes and of denying the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide.

“The Nobel Prize was handed to someone who hailed those who brutally massacred Muslims, Bosniaks, (to someone) who has blood and hatred dripping fro his pen,” Erdogan said.
