Turkey puts blame for ‘sofagate’ fiasco on EU


Turkey on Wednesday blamed the EU for seating arrangements that left European Commi­ssion chief Ursula von der Leyen without a chair during a meeting with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Erdogan and Turkish officials came under a torrent of criticism after images went viral of his meeting on Tuesday with von der Leyen and European Council president Charles Michel in Ankara.

The well-appointed room which the three leaders entered had only two chairs arranged next to the corresponding EU and Turkish flags.
