Erdogan called forest fires an international threat

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said that forest fires had become an international threat comparable to the coronavirus pandemic and terrorism.

“Forest fires are an international threat comparable to the COVID-19 pandemic; it can even be compared to the threat of terrorism,” Erdogan said in an interview with A Haber TV channel.

According to him, the whole world faces the threat of forest fires; forests are burning in the USA, Canada, Russia, Spain, Italy, African countries. Climatic conditions cause this situation.

“I spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He sent us three planes and four helicopters (to extinguish forest fires). This is solidarity. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev has announced his intention to send another amphibious aircraft to Turkey,” the Turkish leader said.

Erdogan added that over the past eight days, 187 forest fires have broken out in Turkey, most of which have been localized, 15 fires are ongoing, 20 aircraft and 51 helicopters are involved in extinguishing them.
