Turkey got chilli on India’s ‘special attention’ in Glasgow, know what President Erdogan said

New Delhi
During the Glasgow Climate Conference, when many countries of the world were clearly discussing the challenge facing humanity and the efforts to deal with it, Turkey was playing a different chord. Turkey expressed its opposition to the special treatment given to India by the host UK in the conference. This caused embarrassment for the UK.

With Glasgow not having enough resources to host such a large global event, the UK urged delegations attending the conference to share hotels. Similarly, buses were organized to take the heads of government to the conference venue. However, the three country hosts, the US and India, were exceptions to this. Members of the delegation from these countries were allowed to stay in hotels which they had specially booked for themselves. While their leaders – Boris Johnson, Joe Biden and Narendra Modi – arrived at the venue with a convoy of cars on November 1.
