World - Turkey`s Erdogan in Algeria to boost trade

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and a delegation of cabinet ministers and business people arrived in Algeria Wednesday for a visit aimed at improving commercial ties, Algiers said.

World - Erdogan slams ridicule of `Muslims discovered Americas` claim

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday hit back at ridicule of his claim that Islamic explorers discovered the Americas three centuries before Columbus, accusing his Muslim critics of lacking `self-confidence`. In an aggressive rebuttal of the criticism heaped in some quarters on his comments, Erdogan also suggested that the purported `discovery` of the Americas by Muslims should be taught in schools. `A big responsibility falls on the shoulders of the national education ministry and YOK (higher education board) on this issue,` Erdogan said at a ceremony in Ankara. Erdogan, a pious Muslim who has been in power for more than a decade, stirred up controversy on Saturday when he claimed the Americas were discovered by Muslims in the 12th century, nearly three centuries before Christopher Columbus.

Turkey is already hosting at least 1.5 million refugees displaced by the Syrian conflict and has repeatedly warned that its capacities are being strained by the numbers.

World - Turkey, US agree plan `to train 2,000 moderate Syrian rebels`

Turkey and the United States have agreed a plan under which some 2,000 fighters from the moderate Syrian opposition would be trained on Turkish soil, a report said Saturday. The fighters from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) will be trained at the Kirsehir base some 150 kilometres (90 miles) south of the capital Ankara by both Turkish and US personnel starting from late December, Hurriet Daily News reported, quoting unnamed officials. The United States will provide weapons for the fighters and is also expected to pay for the training, the English-language daily said. The officials did not, however, reach an agreement on the training of Syrian Kurd fighters from the Democratic Union Party (PYD), who are leading the battle against Islamic State jihadists for the key border town of Kobane, the paper said.
