NNA - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused Washington of "sacrificing" relations with Ankara, and has blamed the ongoing diplomatic dispute on a US ambassador "who doesn't know his place."


"Let me be very clear, the person who caused this is the ambassador here. It is unacceptable for the United States to sacrifice a strategic partner to an ambassador who doesn't know his place," Erdogan told provincial governors in Ankara on Thursday, as quoted by Reuters.
