UAE official warns of Turkey's visit until "Erdogan's fall"

Dubai Police Deputy Chief Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan has warned against traveling to Turkey until the government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan falls.

Khalfan's statement came in response to the arrest of two people by the Turkish authorities, accusing them of spying for the UAE and talking about their role in the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal al-Khashoggi at his consulate in Istanbul on October 2, 2018.

 Khalfan said on Twitter, "My advice is not to travel to Turkey at all until Erdogan's government falls."

He added, "Turkey's occasional arrests of Emirati citizens must be met with popular boycotts to travel to Turkey."

The relations of most countries in the region deteriorated with the Turkish regime because of the latter's support for groups of political Islam and its interference in the affairs of the region and its attempt to impose its control over them to revive the dreams of the Ottoman Empire.
