Turkish President has said that if Putin's accusations are proved he will resign to save the prestige of the Turkish state.
He appealed to the Russian president with a question whether Putin would resign if his charges were not confirmed?
"I will make my meaning perfectly plain: if these facts are confirmed, I will not continue my stay in office. At the same time I ask Mr Putin whether he will," TASS quoted Erdogan as saying.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan also called on the Russian side to provide evidence confirming allegations of Putin, which he described as unacceptable and immoral.
"Everyone knows which countries we are trading oil with. The U.S. Treasury reported that one of the acquirers of the "Islamic state" oil was a citizen of Russia and Syria. Let they first reply to this," the president said.
President Erdogan added that Turkey "was struggling against those engaged in smuggling of oil."
